Evening Rock Climbing in the Lakes

If you've been driving on the M6 Junction 36 (South Lakes turning) and wondered what the craggy hill is just to the East, it's Farlton Fell, a popular place for Paraponting (that's a scary sport!), Mountain Biking, short Walks, and Rock Climbing.

The steep and obvious "nose" in the col, and visible from the car, contains "Rose Amongst Thorns" VS 4b and Avoidance HS 4a - these were our routes tonight.

If you're on Farlton it's well worth walking to the top and a few hundred meters North for spectacular views down onto the roads, across to the Lakes, across the sea and Morecambe Bay to Barrow and to the Yorkshire National Park peaks of Ingleborough etc, fantastic!
