Crag features

A beautifully situated bouldering area with a variety of walls of perfect rock high on the left, and an interesting boulder field below. A great place to spend time on a good day 

Take tape, take gauze maybe and a full medical kit as the rock is rough. Really rough. Like climbing barnacles. Grades.....well as with most places in the lakes take the grades with a massive pinch of salt and prepare to have your ego battered. Even the VB and V0 climbs can leave you a gibbering wreck. If you want to try the likes of central line and Eiger aspirant then ideally you'd want a few Mats and spotters to feel totally comfortable.

It truly is a gorgeous location though. Tranquil and with a fantastic outlook. Expect to be accompanied by ravens and buzzards and even the odd red kite.

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.
More info
The rock here is so horribly sharp. Do not go here on a misty day without a compass as it is very easy to get lost.
