ENNERDALE


Being so far west and near the sea the big crags that give good summer rock climbing and offer good potential winter lines very rarely come into condition. This is compounded by the relative remoteness of the valley meaning that it is always going to be risky heading round there in marginal conditions. There is however great potential for hard mixed routes. A returning polar maritime is the best bet for conditions and it will have to come at the end of a prolonged cold spell. Good luck.
