Scrambling in South Lakes

Glorious day out with Paula, Sue, Jane, Nicole and Sarah. We started the day scrambling up a ghyl near to where they camped overnight. The riverbed was dryer than I've seen it before which allowed us to ascend water shutes and explore areas I've not been to before.
A bit of ropework for extra confidence & security allowed everyone to climb some challenging ground.


Next we headed off to Jack's Rake, a fantastic (and popular) scramble up and across the large face of Pavey Ark






On the way back down to the Sticklebarn pub for a well earned drink we slid through a dog-gate (well, almost all of us!). For a laugh(?)
