/ Taking beginners top-roping in the South Lakes?
I'm in Grange-over-Sands for the weekend and a mate has asked if I'll take him climbing gor the first time. Where is the best spot in the South East lakes area? Don't really fancy driving back into the mountains as I'll be heading back to Sheffield afterwards.
Thinking Hutton Roof at the minute unless there's some better ideas.
Lindale Slabs are just north of Grange. Small, Slab suitable for top-roping but Hutton Roof is probably your best bet.
Hoad slabs, Ulverston? Bolt belays but busy road nearby.
as mentioned, Hutton roof probably better if heading east
Nice one guys. Hutton Roof it is then haven't been since I was little so should be nice to see if much has changed.
I took my boys climbing to Lindale Slabs for their first outdoor routes, and was informed that it is a "bookable crag" and an instructor had reserved the crag for the day.
Perhaps everyone else is already familiar with this system, but it came as a surprise to me.
The landowners control access and there's an outdoor centre that does the bookings.
Hope it's not a system that spreads but I can understand the point in this special case.
