Lakes climbing

Great weather in the Lakes this past couple of weeks and I've been out climbing most days.

I had a fantastic 6 days climbing with Will and Naomi. The week was a great mix of coaching/instruction in lead climbing, multi-pitch climbing, bouldering and training for climbing.

Naomi really enjoying her leading on 'Thomas' Wallabarrow Crag, Duddon Valley.

We also had a great session bouldering at Hutton Roof working on technique. It's a great venue for this on th edge of the Lakes and easy access from Kendal.

On the Saturday I linked up with Nick who's coming out to the Alps in the Summer and wanted some pre Alpine training. We had a great couple of days. The first day we climbed a route on Raven Crag in Langdale and then headed up to Gimmer Crag, climbed a route on Gimmer up to the summit, traversed back across the hillside and finished up climbing on Pavey Arc - great day, great weather!
On the Sunday we headed up to Upper Scout and climbed a route there which led us into White Ghyll where we climbed before heading back down to Stickle Barn at the end of the day.

The weather continues and the crags are super dry!

Safe climbing
