BOWDERSTONE CRAGS


A collection of crags dotted over the fellside close to the ferocious bouldering venue of The Bowderstone. This group of crags cater for all climbing tastes. Woden's Face is a popular small crag located just above the valley floor. It is sheltered and has plenty of lower and mid-grade climbs and is popular with groups. In total contrast, the jutting prow of Hell's Wall is home to some of the area's finest extreme climbs. There are also a couple of decent climbs on the two outlying pinnacles.
