Goat Crag (Borrowdale)

Borrowdale

Goat Crag is the name for the broken and scattered crags opposite Bowderstone Crag. The southerly section is comprised of a number of broken outcrops, whilst further around hillside the North Buttress forms an impressively steep sweep of rock, home to mega classics such as Footless Crow, Bitter Oasis, Preying Mantis and more.

Area information

Many Lake District fells and crags now have an Open Access designation following the CRoW Act. 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 and reviewed each year through the season. If the birds do not nest, restrictions are lifted early - any updates to climbing restrictions will be updated on the crag page on RAD as soon as any changes are known about.
