The weather forecast is excellent. I am aiming to be at the base of Steel Knots by 4.30 (hoping someone will drag me up something!)
Steel Knots has a couple of good MVS routes and a challenging VS as well harder fare. Those wanting greater challenges will head a bit further up the path to Castle Crag, which offers starred HVSs and a Severe with a 5a finish!
The walk-ins are fairly short (depending where you manage to get parked) and the routes single pitch so suitable for late arrivals.
Nearest parking is in Grange village, but this is limited, so you may need to park either as for Black crag (also limited) or further down the road at Quayfoot.
The crags are approached via the lane behind the Grange tea shop and Hollow Stones campsite (parking strictly campers only).
Anyone wanting to lift share from Cockermouth at about 3.30, please let me know via e-mail email@example.com.
