Fell & Rock Climbing Club Duddon & Wrynose is a climbing guide that covers both the Duddon Valley and the popular crags accessed from Wrynose Pass. It gives clear route descriptions and generous sized photo-diagrams, showing the lines of the routes. There are also many great action shots included in the guide and there’s the usual supplementary information on parking and camping, plus a comprehensive crag selector.
The limestone and sandstone crags and quarries described in this guide are scattered over a large area of North, East and South Cumbria outwith the Lake District, and a major attraction is that its climbs may often remain dry when those in the National Park are not.
Langdale is without a doubt one of the finest of the Lakeland valleys and is easily reached from the M6 motorway; the climber is well catered for with pubs, cafes and campsites. One downside of its popularity with walkers and climbers is that its car parks tend to fill up very quickly on a sunny morning. As a large proportion of the crags facing south the valley is an all year round venue.
