Rock climbing on mountain crags in Cumbria - April 2011

We've been making the most of the dry spell to get to some of the remoter mountain crags in Cumbria;

High Crag, Buttermere
Borrowdale - Shepherd's Crag - 3 routes including 'Kransic Crack Direct' (5a)
Ennerdale - Boat Howe - remote, fantastic rough rock, limited protection, and beware the grades!
Buttermere - High Crag - a fantastic crag. 2 routes including 'Foul Play' (5b) a superb route.
Wasdale - Buckbarrow - 2 routes including 'The Mysteron' (5b)
Langdale - White Ghyl - another 2 routes, including 'Do Not Direct' (5b)
and a quick trip to Trowbarrow - Assagai Wall (5a?)
High Crag, sheltering from strong winds!
The rain arrived yesterday which meant it's time to do some paperwork.
