Failure !!

I have been neglecting my duties in the Lakes again and been tempted north. Some routes were done at the weekend with exciting lean conditions being found on the crags. It is now once again warm and wet in Langdale

I had a week in wild weather getting very cold, doing some hard climbing but failing to actually get up anything. All I have to show for it is a chest infection and sore arms. You can't win all the time.

I was among those enjoying the lean conditions in the Lakes last weekend. I had little time but nipped up SE Gully on Great End on Saturday afternoon. I have soloed this route a few times before but the thin ice on the second step/chimney made it an even more outing than normal.
