Free problems - Lake District Bouldering by Greg Chapman
- Monday 18 May 2020
With disparate views and diverse topography, the Lake District and its surrounding areas offers arguably more variety than any other bouldering area in the UK. The region plays host to an assortment of rock including volcanic stone in the central fells and valleys, Triassic sandstone in the north and Carboniferous limestone in the south. Despite being a popular tourist destination, bouldering in the Lake District has only recently been developed with most areas only discovered within the last twenty years. So unlike the bouldering honeypots found in the Peak District, Yorkshire and North Wales, you'll often have entire crags, even major ones, to yourself, eschewing the crowds while taking in the tremendous climbing, incredible settings and tranquillity.
