We have just released a huge amount of new information to Rockfax Digital. Three new crags in the Lake District, and two big new areas in France, plus an update for an area in Clwyd.
In the Lake District, the beautiful and unique St. Bees Head offers some superb seaside sport climbing on beautiful red sandstone. More normal mountain crags can be found in the shape of Kettle Crag in Langdale and Lickle Crag in the Duddon Valley. These latter two are only small but have been cleaned up to give some excellent mid-grade trad routes.
By way of complete contrast, we have a selected guide to the magnificent and popular valley of Ailefroide in the Ecrins area of France. This ‘Yosemite of the Alps’ has a brilliant set of fully bolted multi-pitch routes and a lot of excellent and accessible single pitch as well.
Also added to the collection is a guide to some of the excellent crags found in the Maurienne Valley which is situated between the national parks of the Ecrins and the Vanoise to the north. The valley is better known as the artery route for the Frejus Tunnels to Italy however further up the valley once the traffic has left, it opens out into beautiful mountain scenery with some delightful crags.
As a final bonus, we have also included an update to Independence Quarry on Clwyd Limestone.
All of these new crags are free to everyone for the next two weeks (until 27 August). All you need to view them is to install Rockfax Digital on your device, create an account and then search for the crags.
