I’ve been #climbing twice this week, it’s looking to be a good start to the year. Bruce and I went over to Black Crag in the #Borrowdale Valley to climb Troutdale Pinnacle. It was a damp day but you can still #climb this route as the grade is severe with big positive holds. Bruce climbed the first pitch, me the second, Bruce the third. Being one of the Borrowdale classics I have always got a look of bemusement when I say I’ve never climbed this route, I can now tick that box. I’ll defiantly be going back to Black Crag this summer.
A bit late I know but last week I had a trip into the National Park with two pals for a bit of winter #climbing . We set off from the Borrowdale Valley and headed for Great End. Once at the bottom of Great End we could see the main gully known as Central Gully. We fitted our crampons and with axes at the ready set off. There were two small sections of vertical ice which got the heart pumping a little more then usual due to the fact we were soloing. The last sixty meters was hard snow which we charged up. We had a spot of lunch and then made our way over to Scafell Pike. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, with views to die for. We made our way back down via Great End and Grains Gill, once back at the car I was thankful to kick my boots off. What a great place #cumbria is for #outdoor #adventure

Winter is upon us and i’m hoping to get some quality kayaking done, that’s if we get the rain. I was reminiscing about past adventures abroad and at home and stumbled across this footage. This is from when Eden Valley Adventures went out to Val Sesia Italy. Thanks to Mega Swimmer (Zak Dunning) for putting video together.
