Climbing At Headend Quarry

With: Ferg
Where: Headend Quarry is just outside the northern boundary of the Lake District National Park; mid way between Keswick & Carlisle. Its our local crag.
Weather: bitterly cold NW wind; one or two bursts of sunshine - a heavy downpour brought the session to an early end


Its Autumn Retreat week at Blaithwaite, we've got 15 folk on the retreat & its a great time at the Centre.
Kay covered the office / site while Ferg & I nipped out for about an hour and a half to the quarry. I love the views from the crag, to the south Skiddaw and slightly further afield the North Western fells looked moody & broody. To the north the ever increasing number of wind turbines were working hard & occasional bursts of sunshine illuminated the flatlands which lie between the Northern Fells & the Solway Coast. It was absolutely baltic and only minimal climbing was achieved before a torrential downpour ended things prematurely.
