Description 

Great Langdale plays host to a number of fine crags. None of the crags give way to towering summits, but they do offer some great climbs with most within a reasonable hike from the car.

This is craging Lake District style.


Getting There 

From Keswich head south towards Grasmere. From Ambleside head west towards Skelwith Bridge. From either of these location head towards Chapel Stile, and then continue west on the B5343.

When you reach the Old Dungeon Ghyll hotel you're here!
