Crag features

Small but scenic circuit of mostly low to mid-grade problems with some harder lines.

Topo-guide can be downloaded here: http://www.lakesbloc.com/crags/south-west/354-horsehow-crag-boulders.html

Approach notes

Park at Hardknott Pass (road can be closed/dangerous in winter) and walk southwest - approx. 15-20 mins. Approach can be boggy in places and area is best visited when the wind is down.

Sorry, I see now some of the names I gave to problems don’t really work/aren’t as good as they should be. It’s ok with me if names are changed to just descriptive ones, e.g. ‘Per Aspera’ to ‘High Wall’.
