Bowderised

Tuesday March 20th

More like June, 22deg and counting

Adventurous multi-crag day in Blistering Borrowdale

First up - Bowderstone Pinnacle - much admired from afar, now finally getting to grips with it



P1, HS+

BP about to do battle with the bulge






NB follows in a fine position



BP heading up into God-knows what's up there?



It took three belays to get up and off this tricky top out.

A minor epic


From here a rope walk off then down for two routes back in the valley on Woden's Face

Big in Bozel

March 3rd - 9th
It's the third year in a row for Thomski at Bozel Base
No overnight stop so 7 days skiing on offer
5 sunny, two snowy days added up to a great week


View across to gondola arrival



Looking across to the run off the back down to the Borselieres





Above the Rossa lift

Big area
Big snow
Big mountains
Big days out


More pictures here

A three minute video of most of the team here

And another video featuring some side of the piste stuff here
