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.
