Tebay Night Climbing

Tonight was sooo cold - the car thermometer said minus 12 and the air was freezing in our nostrils. So we had to go out with our head torches, didn't we?
Literally a step (or 3) from the car saw us tying on and attacking the brittle ice. This "crag" gives a number of lines approximatelly 13 meters high. The ice was thin and brittle ice with sparse protection - beware! So after Dan led the first route we were into top ropeing and having some quick fun.
