Jeremy Wilson on Pericles (E1) - Eagle Crag - Grisedale (from Lake District Climbs Rockfax). © Mark Glaister

Crag features

Multi pitch routes up to 76m. Kestrel Wall (S), Sobrenada (VS), Soliloquy (E1), Earlybirds (E2), Morning Slab (HVS).

Approach notes

One hour from parking in Patterdale. There is no parking at all in the Grisedale Valley - beware of the mad farmer!

Follow the path towards ruthwaite lodge. then cut across to the obvious cliff. it's marked on the OS map- so no excuses for getting lost. It's pretty obvious.

Sorry no info to submit as I've not climbed there, but the BMC access link is for Eagle Crag, Borrowdale.
