Stories, information and comments from Shap climbers
Story by The Cat from London, United Kingdom, submitted on 20/06/2012
Went in June 2012 and had dreadful weather - visibility very low probably spoiled some nice valley views. Also, as it is the A6 was quite a busy road - a few lorries overtaking. Never gets too steep but after about 10miles of some sort of incline you''re glad to reach the top. Probably one of the toughest climbs if you''re doing a conventional route LEJOG.
