Climbing and Scrambling

Easily reached from the heart of the valley, Wallowbarrow Crag (click for map) provides around 30 routes to suit climbers of all grades including the popular "Trinity Slabs" (VD) and "Thomas" (S). It faces south-west and is a popular crag, particularly when the weather makes the high mountain crags less attractive. There are also other minor crags, including Stonestar and Seathwaite Buttress. To the east there is classic climbing at all levels on Dow Crag, accessible via the Walna Scar track.

There are also many good scrambles in the area, for those who prefer to travel light and leave the gear behind but still enjoy the rocks. (See "Scrambles in the Lake District" and "More Scrambles in the Lake District", published by Cicerone.)
