    The forecast for Saturday is currently dry with a small chance of a shower. Recognising that the forecast can change day by day at this time of year I will monitor the weather and make a final go/no go decision late Thursday/Friday

    Grey Crag has a good selection of quality routes up to 40m long on several buttresses which link well together to give a good days climbing across the grades. At the lower end the best routes are Mitre Buttress Direct(VD), Harrow Buttress(D), Slabs West(HS), Suaviter(S), Oxford and Cambridge Direct(MS), Dexter Wall(VS).

    Approach: One and a half hour uphill walk from Gatesgarth Farm, perhaps less for the very fit. Alternatively walk from Buttermere, takes about 15 minutes longer

    Parking: Gatesgarth Farm charges £4 to park but there are other places nearby.
