Rockfax Description
Lots of interesting climbing on good rock - high in the grade. Start at a short flake-crack/chimney.
1) 4c, 16m. Overcome the short crack/chimney then climb a groove on the right to meet up with Mickledore Grooves. Belay here.
2) 4c, 20m. Move up to a slab on the wall above then traverse left to twin cracks. Follow these to a corner and head up it to a stance.
3) 4b, 20m. Climb the corner to the top, moving out left and then back right near the top. © Rockfax

sn 1 Jul, 2018 AltLd O/S Not wanting to battle with the Wasdale 3-peaker minibuses, we took a very long but scenic approach up Eskdale. Fulcrum is a great route, direct and through steep ground, with an entertaining start, a tricky middle pitch and a fine juggy finish. I'd give it 3 stars.
