Another Late Season Special - dreadful weather east of Pennines but another world out west - got to be Lakes again! Nights drawing in, need fast access and exit and single pitches to suit all three members, where else but the fabulous rock of that prime venue.....
Castle Rock of Triermain
Looking forward to the regular circuit on a very mild Autumn day, not at all gnarly, how disappointing.....
BP gets ready to tackle the head wall on Lilith
Get on up there...!
PM making the steep and delicate last few moves
AT on Slab Climb
Lost count of number of repeats
Always a treat
PM looking to seek out those side pulls
They are all still there!
Moving right along to Wall Climb
BP gets his hips well forward
The superb Gangway Climb
PM in an amazing position
Sensational verticality from this angle
Time for another one....
AT on the steep intro to Direct Route
Cue a phew!
Then into the steep and juggy crack system
The crag basks in the glow the late afternoon sun
BP reaching for the good hold
AT wresting with a pair of irritable Italians
(belay plate succumbed to gravity)
Bit of a struggle to keep up, managed to make it work
Fingers crossed for another balmy Autumn day?
