/ Climbing near Kirby lonsdale
Hi going on trip to Kirby Lonsdale next week hoping to do some climbing while im there. I will be climbing with my girlfriend so preferably quality easier routes. Any recommendations are welcome. I also need a Guide book any suggestions where i could get one locally? Thanks
Twistleton Scar might be worth a look. Or Hutton Roof for very easy stuff.
Yorkshire Limestone area starts less than 10 miles from KL (Robin Proctor scar has quality easier routes). Lancashire rock, Carnforth area starts 5 miles from KL (Hutton Roof is a pretty, limestone crag with short routes).
And then there is the Lake District just 25-30 miles away!
Plenty to go at if you have a car. If not, you can get a bus fro KL to Clapham or Austwick for Robin Proctor scar.
On a sunny evening you can't beat Hutton Roof (well, you can but not within 10 minutes of Kirkby Lonsdale)
Thanks for the replies will check it out. Which guide book is it in? can you get it on rockfax app?
Hutton Roof and Trowbarrow are in the Lancashire Guide
Proctor's is in the Northern Limestone Rock Fax guide so this might be on the app
Twistleton scar is a great venue loads of routes solid rock. Good for trad and tope roping
Hutton Roof has an awesome atmosphere (though some routes are badly polished), good for bouldering and short trad. Free guidebook on lakesbloc:
Trowbarrow near Carnforth is great for longer Trad routes, also worth checking out Giggleswick if you want to clip some bolts.
As for proper guidebooks, Inglesport in ingleton is the nearest climbing shop. Its got some knowledgeable staff and a good selection of guidebooks. They also run a indoor wall which is surprisingly good considering the size of the village (or at least it was when I was a climbing there)

So it is : )
Jean Genie? Best VS at the crag.
Don't pick anything without stars though ou you'll end up in a choss fest!!
