Lakes Conditions – last 2 days – Great End, Brown Cove and Red Tarn
Yet more amazing weather and conditions in the Lakes over the last few days, when will it end? We have had a number of courses running this weekend…
Guided Climbing with Rob
Fine weather and conditions again today on the Red Tarn face. Rob was keen to get the axes out for a day before joining one of our week courses in Scotland this year. We had a great day on Viking Buttress with the Loki start, the normal route was in great condition still, Thors Corner looked good also, the steeper routes are a bit stripped now. All the gullys and ice variations are looking good. Another brilliant day and 2 weeks without packing a waterproof now!
2 Day ‘Learn to Lead in Winter’ Course with Juliette and David
We have just had Juliette and Dave out for 2 days of learning to lead in winter which builds on the range of rock skills they already have. Today was another day of perfect weather and conditions so they headed to Brown Cove Crags with Tom for one of the classic gullys. Saturday was spent at Great End climbing Custs Gully. Lots of lead and retreat skills covered… Thanks for running a great course Tom.
Winter Skills with Highpoint Mountain Guides
Out with Joe and Highpoint Mountain Guides today for some winter skills and a tour up Helvellyn. Lots covered with brilliant weather and with good snow conditions and plenty of good banter from the team!
