Split Rock - Copper Mines Valley - Coniston © Andy Hyslop - UKC
Made up of three boulders in the coppermines valley above Coniston, in a line along the coppermines path. Split Rock is the lowest, then the Pudding Stone itself then the Ridge Stone, on (you guessed it), the ridge. The rock is good, with good descents. Some routes on the west face are high, so it may be advisable to toprope. [John Roberts]
From Coniston take the second R after the bridge, for Walna Scar. Turn left up a very steep hill and continue to the fell gate. Turn R and follow the track for about 0.5 miles, until parking spaces. Follow the quarry track rightwards across the hillside until it turns into a path. The Pudding Stone is just beyond. The Ridge Stone is situated to the north, over a stream. The Split Rock is about 80m south.
