Steely stuff

November 15th
Steel Knotts - a good place for hard men at this time of year
So how come me, Mr P and Johhny K (from the USA) were out there?


Mr P leads out on Ambling Ant MVS 4b


Following the same route in a fine position - a steely span




"Route 2" tackles the obvious crack lower right.  Jamsville!

Route 2




Also MVS 4b 

Go Johnny....



Jam for your life and grab that jug!











Phew


Route 2

Still some good moves left






Great views up Borrowdale
More good shots here

Glacissimus

Monday November 7th. Fantastic forecast again, so the late season team re-group for one last effort to see out 2011

Glaciated Slab seen here glowing in the midday sun





Four routes done on sparkling rock, very nice!

Rather phased by the wobbly flake on the last route, and the sudden switch from slabby to bulging so pimped out and reverted to a more amenable option out on the right.

Looking down Borrowdale from the summit





The Gman half way up some Trodorother

A Glorious End of the 2011 season?

45 minute walk in, 230m of ascent
