Buttermere weekend at Birkness Barn
Please contact the meet leader or the club.
A weekend of walking, scrambling or climbing based in Buttermere at the Birkness – FRCC hut. Or join the Abraham's Tea Round run!
"Buttermere is a valley somewhat hidden from the mainstream buzz of the Lakes with a few gems of crags. There are some easily reached crags (Yew Crags, Buckstone Howe), higher crags in fine positions (High Crag) and the high mountain crags in Birkness Combe (Eagle Crag and Grey Crag). For those days when only the coast has fair weather, St Bees Head is within easy reach.
Both Borrowdale and Newlands are a very short drive away and the Gable and Pillar crags are accessible with a longish hike."
We have provisionally reserved beds - £14 per night (as a Kindred Club Member). Please confirm attendance at least 2 weeks in advance.
Different meets require varying levels of experience and fitness. Please speak to the meet organiser before the meet if you are concerned about any issues with regard to the meet or your ability to participate in the activities proposed. Contact details can be found on the Contact Us page.
