Cornflake Buttress

Eskdale & Duddon

The rock is steep and flaky, which gives a strenuous and fingery style of climbing. The routes can be sheltered from a strong westerly wind and they generally dry quickly. There are numerous ants in the area and care needs to be taken - leave your rucksack hanging from a branch and not on the floor where it will become covered in ants!Not had much traffic, Lower Tier is slowly disappearing under moss.Fantastic situation though.

Area information

With implimentation of the CRoW Act (2000), many Lakes fells and crags now have an Open Access designation. They also have many nationally important bird and plant species dependant on inaccessible crags/ledges and heather/mixed heath environments for survival. During the bird nesting period, a number of species can be vulnerable to disturbance. The Lake District restrictions are monitored, variable (VR) and reviewed in April/May. If the birds do not nest, restrictions are lifted early. Check the BMC and FRCC websites in early May for details. New restrictions will be notified on the websites and with on-site notices.
