FAQs: Rock Climbing in Lake District

What should I know about Rock Climbing Lake District?

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.

Why should I choose Lake District for my Rock Climbing adventure?

Stunning scenery

Composed of mountains, lakes and forests, the Lake District in northwestern England provides the perfect scenic backdrop for a rock climbing trip. Heading up to the top of various crags and buttresses gives you the opportunity to see some of this stunning scenery from above and marvel at the glacier-carved landscape.

Plenty to do

The Lake District is chock-full of some incredible climbing experiences. For beginners, or a warm up, there are plenty of scrambles that lead up to spectacular views. Dow Crag, Gimmer or Esk Buttress all serve as excellent intermediate-level climbs. For a challenge, Lakeland rock is a great spot to put your skills to the test.

Combine adventures

The Lake District has evolved into England’s premier outdoor adventure hub and many guides offer multi- or single-day adventure trips. This means you could head otu hill walking in the morning and rock climbing in the afternoon. During the height of summer, rock climbing in the morning followed by canyoning or kayaking is another popular option. Make the most of your holiday!
