21/09/2022 – 28/09/2022 all-day

After several years exploring the northern Lakes from Stu’s Keswick flat (thanks Stu!) this year we’re based in the Duddon valley, an idyllic backwater away from the crowds. I’ve booked bunks for us at High Moss Cottage (grid ref SD237966, a modern climbing hut with good facilities and with some great climbing within walking distance. Twenty minutes away is Wallowbarrow, of which Rockfax says: ‘sits in a magnificent position…friendly grades…rock quality and protection are good’. Just over an hour away is Dow Crag, one of the classic Lakes big cliffs; the FRCC guidebook says: ‘first class climbing…right across the grading spectrum…a superb setting’. There are also lots of other crags within a short drive.

We’ll be sharing the cooking tasks and chores in the hut. I’ve booked six bunks; if it looks like there are going to be more of us I’ll see what I can arrange with the hut warden and I’ll probably need a deposit.
