KENTMERE


In recent years this beautiful valley has quickly developed into one of the major bouldering venues in the Lakes. Badger Rock has always been popular, but in the early 90's Elliot Blaycock and others started to develop Little Font in the woods behind. More recently Greg Chapman and friends have developed the great boulder up Garburn Pass and the nice area to the north - now grandly titled the Valley of the Kings.
