Crag features

Short routes on sound rough rock over a good grade range. High on the fell but with an easy approach and dries quickly. Best routes are Yellow fever(E2), First Touch(E1), Glass Slipper(E2), Anns Agony(HVS), Skye Ridge(VD).

Needle Arete is an excellent E3 6a.

A number of the routes have thought provoking levels of protection.

A fantastic venue for late/early season, catching any sun that's going.

Approach notes

Park at the summit of Wrynose Pass by the Three Shire Stone. Twenty minutes steady uphill walk.

Guidebooks

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.

Lake District Rock (2015)
Langdale (2013)

Out of print:
Many of the star ratings and some of the grades need updating in accordance with the new guide.

Fantastic on a clear winters day. I went at the end of jan '06 and it was shorts + t shirt weather. Dry as a bone and no wind with a 15 min walk in. The sun works its way round the crag through the day so you can stay warm all day. Only short but quality climbing on great rock though the E numbers seemed a serious proposition with little gear.
