Lake District

Just back from a couple of days in the Lakes with Andy, Harry and Rob. On Saturday we went for some scrambling on Central Buttress and Stepped Ridge on Brown Cove Crags, Helvellyn. We had the odd shower and the rock was slippery where wet, but a fresh wind and some sunshine dried things out as the day went on making for a good day.

Today we were walking in for some wet climbing on Shepherd’s Crag in Borrowdale when Rob walked in to a jutting out rock, which curtailed the day. The things some people will do to avoid wet rock! Heavy showers were coming through all morning and the crags were running with water.
