Lakeside Wall

(21 routes)

The Lakeside Wall is now (2021) open after being closed for several years. The path and base of the climbs are a little bit grown over. However, this wall is well worth a visit and a bit of a brush on the base of the route especially if you are looking for a high concentration of hard routes. A fantastic winter crag.

Type: 
Wall
Aspect: 
North West
Access: 

From the carpark, continue up the tarsealed road to the top of the hill and the old village site. Take the second tarsealed road on your left, then follow this to a rough track at the edge of the bank. Follow a steep track down beside an old water pipe. The first route you come to is about 50m from the base of the hill. Routes are described from left to right.
