Altitude 180m a.s.l
Across Derwentwater to Falcon Crags © USBRIT
Up to 60m. Close to the road and a good evening or short day crag. Some routes have a serious feel - the rock is not always entirely sound! Dry Grasp(E4), Route1(E3), Spinup(VS), Hedera Groove(MVS), Niche(E2), Dedication(E1), Kidnapped(E2), Plagiarism(E2), Usurper(E1), Illusion(HVS), Five Nations(E3).
Park in the carpark on the minor road leading off Borrowdale, walk left on a trail then up through scree. 10 mins.
2016 update: the young birds have now fledged and the restriction has been lifted.
Signed restriction on site for all routes left of Spinup. All other routes on the crag are not affected.
Please do not use the descent gully at the north end of the crag and instead either abseil off or descend around the southern end of the crag.
|Great crag. Some unlikely situations for the grades and a nice outlook. Seems a bit under-climbed and under-starred for how good the routes are.|
