The Eastern Fells: Thirlmere, north to Carrock Fell and south to Kendal, east to Patterdale and beyond to the Far Eastern Fells, are home to some fantastic crags; Castle Rock, Raven Crag (both of them) and Dove to name but a few. And these in turn boast some of the best known climbs in the Lake District; Overhanging Bastion, Fast and Furious, Totalitarian, Liquid Engineering - the list goes on and on.
