Abseiling into Jordan Gap - Pillar Rock




Pillar Rock itself sits on the flanks of Pillar, an imposing and serious place looming high above the Ennerdale valley - one of the more remote areas of the Lake District. 

This summit alludes many hill walkers in their attempts to complete their mountain ticklists - such as the Nuttall's and the Birkett's. 

We can get you there and Slab and Notch is the route of choice. This is a moderatley graded classic climb, with a big walk in and an abseil descent into Jordan Gap. 

Get in touch to plan your adventure onto Pillar Rock. 


Please bring all the gear you need for a regular hill walk and be prepared for the mountain conditions on the day. 

Our scrambling/mountaineering kit lists are a good aid to use. 


We will provide any technical equipment you may need.
