Advanced Scrambling - Pinnicle Ridge

Nigel and I had a couple of days scrambling in the Lake District, with the weather changing from cloudy to sunny at a fantastic pace. One moment with great views and the next in atmospheric clouds.

On the second day we ascended Pinicle Ridge - a wonderful grade III scramble hidden away on St Sunday Crag. An extreemly photogenic route, occasionally with wonderful views over towards Helvelyn. We were lucky and met another group with an enthusiastic photographer - thanks for the photos!

Multi Pitch Climbs and Abseiling on Gimmer Crag

Gimmer Crag in the Lakes has many superb climbs and so it was an excellent place, on a warm summers day, to introduce Nik and Carolyn to multi pitch climbing. We climbed 3 routes including; Main Wall (VD) and Ash Tree Slabs (VD+, in Clasic Rock) before abseiling down off the ledge. Then it was a walk down the hill to a well earn't pint in the climbers bar at the Old Dungeon Ghyll hotel.
