Crag features

Only able to climb when the level of the lake has dropped enough which is normally during mid summer. The Rock is very clean due to being submerged for 9 months of the year and the landings are good (with a mat). Also known as the Lost Boulders of Atlantis!

2020 UKC thread noted: "The consensus was that all the boulders are out when the level is 10m, though a lot of climbing is possible at say 11.7m."

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.

Got down there and though the Whale was still partially under water these boulders are worth a look as they are not far off the road and are mostly unavailable. Nice clean rock to
