Situated in the county of Cumbira in Northwest England, Lake District National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site and an excellent spot for any number of rock climbing adventures.
Boasting plenty of high-quality granite and sandstone, the Lake District is the perfect place to learn and enjoy rock climbing. Numerous single and multi-pitch trad and sport climbs are available throughout the park.
Some of the best climbing is located near Langdale and Keswick, so many trips begin from these idyllic little towns. From here, there are plenty of great walls, cliffs and crags boasting incredible views. There is simply nowhere better to climb in all of England!
During the summer, average daily temperatures sit just below 20 ºC in the Lake District. Summer is also the driest time of year, but rain is not infrequent.
Flying into Manchester International Airport (MAN) is the first step in getting to the Lake District. From here, there is some rail and bus service to the path, but renting a car and making the 1.5 hour drive north along the coast is the fastest and certainly a scenic way to get there.
