    The meet will be based at the Eskdale campsite in Boot

    Eskdale Campsite
    Boot,
    Holmrook,
    Cumbria,
    CA19 1TH
    Phone Number: 019467 23253
    http://www.eskdalecampsite.com
    Latitude: 54.3987 Longitude: -3.2661
    NY 178 010

    Fabric and tin tents welcome.

    Book on line via the campsite website and mention Mynydd Climbing Club, they will aim to put us together.

    The site has all the usual facilities and is a 5 minute walk form the village of Boot. 10% discount for campsite users who eat at the Boot Inn (voucher from campsite needed).

    The main climbing attraction is Esk Buttress, laced with three star routes at all grades from HS upwards. Whilst in a fantastic mountain setting, the crag itself is at less that 500m altitude, south east facing and fairly quick drying. The 1.5 hours approach is pleasant and largely gently uphill other than the last stretch up to the crag.

    Lots of other lower level crag options also, as well as reasonable access round to Wasdale or over to Dunnerdale.

    Loads of walking options with the south side of the Scafell/Crinkle Crags/Bowfell fells on the doorstep and plenty of less strenuous alternatives.

    Not that anyone would be interested, of course, but the road bike loop over to Dunnerdale-Coniston-Little Langdale and back over Wryknott and Hardnose passes is a real classic.
