About Grey Crag(OS):

The best crag in the Buttermere area. Good, sound, clean rock which dries quickly. Southeast facing and worth an early start. About 30 routes, mostly in the lower grades, Mod to VS, most being Diffs. Great for the inexperienced climber and the VS leader who enjoys being the SUPER CRAGRAT! Well worth a visit.
Nearest town or city: Buttermere

1.5 miles south of Buttermere. Take the B5289 to Gatesgarth at the south end of the lake. Follow the footpath running around the south end, then up the path on the fell to the right, beneath some small crags to a high valley. Straight ahead is Eagle Crag, and to the right is Grey Crag. Crags are reached in about an hour.
