Borrowdale

After a day running orienteering, team building and stream walks with Steve at Muiravonside on Friday I headed down to the Lake District on Saturday to meet Andy, Harry and Rob. On Saturday we had a mountaineering day climbing Intake Ridge and Outside (Face) Route on Dove Nest Crag in big boots and with sack with the Central Chimney proving a struggle with bags for some.

Sunday saw us back in Combe Ghyll climbing on Glaciated Slab, which had been quiet when we passed above it on Intake Ridge. However, it proved a popular choice today, but teams worked well with each other and we climbed Trod Yan, Trod Tan, Trod Tethera, Trod Methera and Trod Lethera as well as doing a practice stacked abseil for Harry to the right of the crag. It was dry on both days with today being hot and sunny and the crags were in great condition.
