Gable Crag

A massive crag that sees little sun and takes time to come into condition. The best climbing is to be found on the sheer wall perched in the centre of the cliff - Engineer's Slab. Most of the routes follow cracks and have good protection, but a couple of the harder lines take the blanker, more serious walls. The routes are not particularly long, but when added to the extended approach scramble, large scree slope and location at the head of Ennerdale, exposure is very much a feature of the climbing.
