Approach: From Kirkstone summit car park take the main paved path to Red Screes. At about 600m altitude where the path turns left,take a wide grass rake up right then follow a sheep-track traversing right to the base of the buttress. 30min

Start up the central corner, climb the right wall via the thin crack-line .

  1. The crag has been more extensively developed,so ‘Kirkstone Upper Buttress’is a more suitable title than ‘Kirkstone Upper Buttress’.
