The ‘Atlantis’ boulders of Thirlmere. Long used by rock climbers for training on, they present a selection of short, hard climbing problems.
The lower the water in the reservoir, the more problems become available. In this photo the water level is rising and is already too high.
A few days before the reservoir had been at least five feet lower and the best conditions are when it is about ten feet lower than this.
