Engineer's Slabs © petesdavies
Up to 90m high. Needs a good dry spell and is sometimes referred to as the Lakes' coldest crag (see winter). Snicker Snack (E3), The Tomb(E2), Engineer's Slabs(VS) and Sarcophagus(E3) are the most popular summer routes. In winter, Engineers becomes a classic VI. Currently home of the Lakes' hardest winter route - Snicker Snap (VIII 9).
One and a half hour walk from Honister Pass summmit.
|As far as I can recall the walk in is very amenable.|
