Lakes Conditions

The last few days in the Lakes have given some great winter conditions and brilliant weather!

3 days ago we did Chock Gully which was in OK condition with good snow ice, some hollow/thin section though as well.  Today we did Engineers Slabs on Gable Crag, the whole crag was in great condition for steep mixed climbing, turf solid and well frosted up! Scafell Crag looked really good too.  Its set to continue for a few days so get out if you can!

Mark Rock Climbing Course

‘Having spend three days in the mountains with Paddy I’ve got to say he’s the best guide I’ve ever worked with. Everything was pitched perfectly for my individual level - the choice of climbs, the balance between learning and mileage on the crag, all suited my level of experience. In three days I went from never having climbed trad to leading VD, seconding HVS+ and ticking off a classic mountain route, all thanks to Paddy’s professionalism and enthusiasm. Can’t wait to get out there again!’
