PIKE O' BLISCO


Set high on the southern slopes of Pike o' Blisco is a trio of small crags that present a large number of quality single-pitch routes. Although fairly short, the climbs pack in the difficulties and lots of mileage can be had as the descents are quick and easy. The crags get plenty of sun and dry quickly. Although not far from the summit of Pike o' Blisco, they are easily approached from the Wrynose Path in around twenty minutes or so making it a good choice for an evening visit.
