Langstrath Valley

The entrance of the majestic Langstrath Valley has a trio of good little crags that have some quality routes, although they tend to be overlooked by many in favour of the much more popular Sergeant Crag Slabs further up the valley. Bleak How was developed many decades ago and only a small number of the routes remain clean, although these are well-worth tracking down. Fat Charlies Buttress is a small wall of good rock that gives a few short lines and is useful for a quick climb on the way to or from the other crags, or if staying at the nearby campsite. Upper Heron Crag is perched high up on the fellside and has a long, steep approach rewarded by some great routes in a magnificent location.
