Description

Located just two miles from Keswick . There are two main crags Upper and Lower Falcon .The upper crag is an impressive buttress with a large smooth wall with a corner on its right side ,the corner is part of the first route on this crag Route 1.Prior to this ascent by Peter Lockey and Paul Ross in 1958 the locals always named it the unclimbable crag. Since then about nine routes have been added ... some however are on quite friable rock.The Lower Crag is much more popular. The first climb to appear on this crag was Funeral Way HVS (5.8+) by Paul Ross and Pete Greenwood in 1956,since then over 35 climbs have been recorded from VS (5.7) to E5 (5.11+).
