About Lazonby (OS):

A spectacular escarpment of sandstone running along the west side of the River Eden. 100 to 300 foot high buttresses, with about 50 routes in all grades. The rock is quite soft here (desert-like) and though one can lead, it may be wiser to top rope where you can. Really a spectacular crag and well worth seeing.
Nearest town or city: Penrith
Directions: OS 86 GR NY 527 423 Alt. 96m
8 miles north of Penrith. From Lazonby take the small road that passes over the railway to the north, heading up the side of the river to the left of the railway. Cross over the railway, then continue a little more than 2 miles and park. Take a path heading off right, which leads down some steps to the crag.
