XCMAP (previously INTOCROSS)                                

(Please note that development of INTOCROSS has now ceased. The routes below are deadlinks currently but will be rebadged under XCMAP.  INTOCROSS info sections have been deleted but the routes left for information only until they can be put into XCMAP.)

INTOCROSS (XCMAP) is essentially a database of routes  -  both local and international. 


For the Lakes and Dales area the following system of 'group' sets is being developed.


Cumbria Soaring Club


 Clough Head to Ambleside                             

 Wasdale to Keswick

  Ennerdale to Wasdale                                                             

 Coniston to Catbells

  Barton to Kendal

 The Lakes Majors FAI

 Blease/Jenkins FAI


The routes above are listed for starters and may be considered the official area routes and which constitute some of the main classic challenges. None are particularly long or especially beyond most regular pilots and try to keep within the main Lake District mountains. If you are new to the area or have limited mountain flying experience then you are strongly advised to get a verbal briefing from a local coach or experienced pilot.


There are other routes to be added and it would help if you could suggest (with reason) routes that you feel justify inclusion then please forward them to me.



Dales Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club - all routes prefixed as dhpc. 


Dodd/Wether to York

The Three Peaks

Stags to Hexham/Corbridge

Windbank to Grassington


The same request for routes applies to the Dales area.
