Climbing on Gimmer in Langdale

Fantastic weather in the Lakes, the snow & ice climbing has gone from Cumbria and the rock climbing season has arrived, but there are still patches of snow in the gullys making for fantastic views.

Steve and I headed up to Gimmer to climb multi pitch routes to the left of the Cracks (mentioned in Classic Rock), followed by Ash Tree Slabs Direct, a nice VS 4b taking a direct route up the slab.

We met up with Mark, an instructor from Scotland, who climbed 3 classic Gimmer routes with a client from Climb 365 .

The weather looks good for the rest of the week, possibly turning cooler but staying dry. Maybe an opportunity to climb winter routes on Ben Nevis and rock routes in the valleys?
