Merry Christmas

Well, It's all on here in the Lakes at the moment and it's all about fitting it into the family Christmas plans.....!

Tim and I had some more Christmas shopping to do yesterday, so we whipped up Cautley Spout on the way through into Kendal!

Well, it's Christmas Eve and another fantastic day, cold, Dean and I headed back into the Central Lakes, armed to give a new line a try.

We were heading back to the same crag on which we climbed on last week - the new route we climb then, was a corner line bounding the left edge of the crag which we climbed in 3 pitches.

We wanted to climb the amazing, steep central groove line which just looked fantastic. It's a great looking line, steep, turfy with ice seeping out at half height, spilling down the corner.

It's not often you get this sort of quality mixed climbing on a Lakeland crag

We had a great day and I was still back in time to meet the guys for food, drinks and mince pies with some close friends!

Merry Christmas
