Altitude 150m a.s.l
The classic of the roadside Stonestar Crag, Columbia (E1 5b) Duddon Valley © Mark Glaister
Up to 30m high. Worthwhile routes are Columbia(E1), The Breech(E2), Stonestar Groove(HS), The Challenger(E2).
5 minute walk up from parking directly below the crag.
|This is a fine small crag - particularly in the late evening sun when the rock has been warmed all day - the rock is beautifully rough and in a great setting - not many routes and some rock requiring care at the bottom but no more so than any crag. Columbia is a gem.|

|Very densely brackened 10 minute approach to a crag with an uncomfortable base. Lots of loose rock and little gear. Looks like the only decent area is the one with HVS to E2 routes. Did not enjoy the crag in the least but worth an evening if you climb HVS+.|

|Excellent little crag. Pleasantly warm in the sunshine with some good solid rock with plenty of friction.

|Great little crag. Some sharp edges. Never crowded. Short walk. Reasonable parking. Worth a look on the way to the rest of the Duddon crags.|
