Cam Crag Ridge

Meet organiser: Judith Brown
Pub afterwards:


A good Moderate/Grade 2 scramble on clean rock. It is possible to choose a number of lines depending on how difficult you wish to make it but the following description may be helpful.

Park in Stonethwaite. From the path up Langstrath head up to the bottom of the crag. The initial buttress is reached through a jumble of large boulders. Climb diagonally left across the face, and up the wall on good holds to finish up a narrow ridge. Move up to the main ridge. Take the obvious diagonal crack up the steepening into a short chimney. Big holds on clean solid rock. The steepness then eases, before the next rock band . Follow another diagonal sloping crack up the next steepening again plenty of big holds. Keep to the nose of the ridge and further rocky steps inter-spaced by short grassy terraces. Follow these rocky steps to the top.

    Forecast: Currently looking OK for dry conditions on Saturday.

    Start Time: Please note start time of 9.30 – early start is advisable to maximise parking opportunities.

    Parking: There is a tiny parking area in the hamlet itself, by the telephone box, and various areas on the road into the hamlet where parking is possible on the verges. If using this option please take care not to obstruct access or inconvenience people living and working in the village. The preferred option is at the school, which allows parking in return for a donation in the honesty box. When checked yesterday the campsite was closed and the access gate locked. Do not attempt to park on campground.

    Meeting Point: Please meet at the start of the footpath by the pub (5 minute walk from school). The footpath gate is identified by a large notice reminding us that this is an area of natural beauty.

    The Scramble: An excellent outing with various options to make it easier or harder.

    COVID: Please refer to the COVID briefing that has been sent out to all members and abide by its requirements. Please act responsibly to minimise the risk of either contracting or passing on the virus.
