Lakes Winter Action

Some pics from a recent trip to the Lakes. Martin Cooper, Jonny Morgan, Nick Wallis, Nick Williams and myself had 3 days visiting Gable, Scafell/Pikes Crag and Bowfell. With good early season mixed conds we managed ascents of Jabberwock (with some good airtime!), first ascent of a nice route on pikes crag, an attempt on Botterills Slab, Bowfell Buttress classic route and FWA of Rubicon Groove on Bowfell Buttress. Other teams out made impressive FWA’s of Angel of Mercy, a new route on BB, action on Cambridge crags and lots more activity throughout the Lakes – so a great weekend on the hill. Most impressively, we managed by the skin of our teeth to not write off my car on Honister pass when Jonny slipped off the bonnet and my chains snapped… Thanks to the Honister quarry workers who towed us away from the brink!
