Crag features

Lovely little venue, for mainly low grade problems, in idyllic valley setting, with swimming nearby.

Two boulders, a block and a fin

Approach notes

Park at Brotherilkeld. 20 mins walk on lefthand path to below Heron Crag, or slightly quicker on righthand path if you don't mind getting your feet wet (depending on river state).


Lakes Bouldering

The first dedicated bouldering guidebook to the Lake District, spanning a range of areas largely in the National Park and all north and west of the M6 junction 36. The guide is intended to be useful to the visiting climber looking for a day or evening's light bouldering just as much as the hard-core local with decent coverage for the V1 and V9 boulderer alike.

Volunteer to moderate Heron Stones
We rely on volunteers to moderate their local crags. You would check updates and approve climbs added to the database. It's a very easy job, and all you need is a guidebook and an hour or two each month. [ read more ]
