Meet Promo

This will be a camping meet at Grange campsite GR250168. The main aim on Saturday is to swim at Lambfoot Dub situated halfway along the Corridor Route to Scafell and a few hundred feet above it. There are other swims along the way like Sprinkling Tarn and Styhead Tarn if the weather is good. On Sunday there is a good scramble up Cam Crag Ridge in Langstrath leading to a short walk to Tarn at Leaves, another lovely swim.

Swimming is not compulsory, but of course highly recommended, and Borrowdale is a climbers paradise. Black Crag and the famous Troutdale Pinnacle is a short stroll from the campsite as is Goat Crag for you hard types. The modest but spectacular mountain route of Corvus on Raven Crag is also close by.

Come and enjoy good camping, good company and good mountain adventures.
