Unfortunately, climbing on ancient stones has taken on an even worse twist. Some prat has decided to dry-tool on Copt Howe. This is the site of the rock-art on the boulders in Great Langdale. Dry-tooling involves climbing ice-free rocks with ice-axes and crampons. Apparently, the rocks have been damaged, but not the rock-art - yet.

There's been a bit of an argumentative "debate" on the UK Climbing website, for which I've added the link below:-
