View from Helvellyn across the Thirlmere Lake Towa...
Some of the earliest climbing done in England was done here in the Lake District. The scenery around ‘The Lakes’ attracts many tourists from all over which make the roads a very busy in the summer. Once you park up and head to the crag you’ll be able to enjoy the scenery with fellow climbers and hikers. There are many fine cliffs in The Lakes, with many of them offering high quality multi pitch routes.
Head North on the M6 towards Kendal. Turn left at Kendal and follow the traffic into the Lake District National Park.
