Hi

After some recommendations for some crags to climb at in the lakes on Friday/Monday. Preferably, Easy to get too, Single pitch, Sport preferabily but Trad would be ok too. Lots of low grade climbs upto 5c/6a.

Edit - I'm staying in the Kewsick area so around there.

Cheers

Bram crag quarry for sport.

Loads of trad. Shepherds and the others down Borrowdale or Castle Rock south round the corner.

Bram Crag (sport), as already mentioned.

Hodge Close Quarry (mix of sport & trad.).

Cathedral Quarry (mix of sport & trad.).

Reecastle Crag, Borrowdale (trad. HVS - E7).

Sport climbing in the Lakes is virtually non-existent.

Some sport routes in Dalt quarry in Borrowdale, which are theoretically at those grades....but I don't believe them! Also be aware that the the sport routes at Bram feel more like bolted trad climbs and require a bit more working out of the line than many sport routes.....very good though. As Roger says, The Lakes really comes into its own for trad, and there are plenty of good routes to go at in the lower grades if you have access to a guide.

Bram crag - been twice, rock fall on both occasions, caused by sheep wandering in the scree above, is that common?

The Lakes is really about Trad climbing and there is loads of easy stuff in the area.
However you seem keen on sports climbing which is not really the Lakes forte. I would suggest its worth zipping an hour down the motorway to Yorkshire to Giggleswick or Robin Proctors, much nicer on a sunny day than a Lakeland quarry.
