Crag features

Although Kentmere is only a short deviation from the main road into the south lakes, it has retained a backwater feel, with no tourist infrastructure - and all the better for it. In recent years this beautiful valley has quickly developed into one of the major bouldering venues in the Lakes.

Approach notes

Turn off the A591 at Staveley and follow the signs up the valley. On entering Kentmere village, limited parking can be found beside village hall - please pay at the honesty box. From the parking, follow the tarmac road up, round a sharp left hander and into a group of houses. At the end of these take a sharp right signposted for the Garburn track. All the areas lie left and right of this track.

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.

For some reason Little Women -rh- has been completley missed out of the topo. Originally climbed by myself & repeated by John -V13 it was the hardest in the Lakes for some time, & absolute classic on the giant stone - arguably the problem that brought so much attention to Little Font while I was establishing it as a venue... Worth speaking to Greg or John for adding the info. Si
