Two Half Days in the Northern Fells: Lead Climbing & A Wander

We caught some fresh but bright Autumn weather in northern Cumbria last week (sorry on catch up at the moment). Wednesday afternoon saw some much needed lead climbing practise with Graham at Headend Quarry. The grades weren't difficult but it was good to get back on to rock, this could be a recurring theme over the next few weeks with a training course looming!

Wednesday evening was spent across in Darlington, good to catch up with John Pear, for an evening with Ray Mears at Darlington Civic Theatre. Ray spoke for about two & a half hours - great insight on knowledge; conversation; wildlife and native peoples' . Top class!

Thursday morning was equally bright & crisp. A walk out with Marion along Dale Beck and up to Roughton Gill was the plan. This is familiar territory from: exploring mines; fell running; gill scrambling & ticking off local tops but on this occasion it was good to just take a few photographs & enjoy this special environment that is right on our doorstep.
