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.

Approach from Cockley Beck: a little less than 1.5 hrs, bog is best unavoided for speed, wet feet are a given. Beautiful rivers and the valley is stunning. Bouldering is fantastic and rock is mostly grippy beyond belief (take your thick skin).

Bouldered here in the early 70's on FMC bivi meets. A 'proper' boulder session yesterday and wondering why I've left it so long to return. You couldn't ask for a finer place to shred your fingers!
