Castle How and Harter Fell, Duddon Valley © Lankyman
A superb little crag, five minutes from the road, with short routes (8-13m) on good clean solid rock. A good evening spot. Bring micro wires.
There are four areas with reported routes on them. The main area being 'Orange wall', the large obvious wall with routes ranging from the very easy to the very hard. Turn right from the path and walk up through the rocks to the obvious overhanging Orange Wall on the second tier.
There are a number of smaller satelite butresses the 'Zelda's face' is the bottom most toe of the feature and the first peice of rock encountered when aproaching from the road which features a significant break at two thirds height. 'Rabbit Sheep Butress' is a small clean overhanging face 100m left of Zelda's Face. 'Orange Peel' is another 200 meters left and above RSButress and 100m left and below Orange Wall which features an easy slab and a steep overhanging headwall carectorised by two big corners and aretes.
Please park off the road, by the river, near Hinning House. Enter field by gate, not jumping fence. The crag is on farm land. Access is agreed with the farmer provided we are all considerate. There are birds nesting on the north side of the crag and climbers are asked to stay around Orange Face and Zelda's Face area. Please respect these wishes to ensure our future enjoyment climbing here.
