Crag features

This is designed to be a more comprehensive guide to the High Rock area at Honister, which consists of two large boulders. The original page that includes these boulders can be found here , however this is lacking in many routes and so this page aims to go into more depth.

The High Rock area consists of two large Rhyolite boulders which offer excellent friction and pleasant climbing. Often bold, most routes will benefit from several mats and spotters, or should you be lacking a beanie hat then a rope may suffice. The accuracy of grades varies but all the routes are all worth while.

The Upper boulder is characterised by a large undercut at its front, along the lip of which several routes are based.

The Lower boulder consists mainly of a face that comes to a small curling overhang at its top.

The Boulders are easily visibile from the road, and can be reached with 10 minutes of walking from the road.

A highly recommened venue, away from the hustle and bustle.

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.
