Day 1 - A rainy day in Langdale; Pavey Ark via Cresent Climb and Gwynne's Chimney
|The alpine-esque start of Crescent Climb on Pavey Ark, Langdale|
|The gopping first pitch of Gwynne's Chimney|
Day 2 - The big one! A massive day out in a belter of a spot; Grey Crags, Buttermere.
Big drops, numb fingers and a long walk-in defiantly made this a grand day out!
|Ascending the easy slabs of Chockstone Buttress|
|Emma willing the sunshine to move a bit closer!!|
|The 3rd Pitch of Slabs Ordinary (VD)|
|Oxford and Cambridge Buttress, of whom's stunning central arête (Oxford Cambridge Buttress Direct) is an absolute must do!|
|Surmounting the bulge on the second pitch of Oxford Cambridge Buttress Direct (HS)|
|The quadruplet of buttresses of Grey Crags, 8 pitches of climbing totaling|
over 200m of superb mountain rock climbing on 3 buttresses, and not a single wet hold!
Day 3 - Troutdale Pinnacle and Sargent Crag Slabs
|On the 4th Pitch just below the pinnacle (yes that is blue sky!!!)|
|Now that's what you call a belay.|
|Looking down from the top of the route to the pinnacle itself, quite possibly the coolest route in The Lake District!|
After this excursion we headed over to Sargent Crag Slabs and had a play on Lakeland Cragsman (HVS 5a) which is awesome.. So good infact we forgot to crack out the camera!
