bolt belay has been taken out. now used by lots of groups so can get busy. great rock in a great place but expect to find someone abseiling down your chosen route.

Brings back memories of enjoyable evenings when I lived in W.Cumbria. A useful,quick drying crag to visit if you have a spare afternoon/evening in the area-some short but good routes on Eskdale Granite.The main slab is used occasionally by the nearby OBMS, it has (or did have ) a large BOLT belay above the main slab
