Cambridge Crag, Lakes

Headed up Cambridge Crag \ North Buttress on Bowfell yesterday for my first winter outing of the season with Lee Sheard. We were treated to a beautiful clear blue sky day amidst snow covered fells. The snow cover only amounts to a few cms but we found the crag to be well hoard up. The turf was very variable, from well frozen to not frozen at all depending on aspect and snow cover. We decided to have a go at Professor V (5) but found the initial start to be absolute nails. After a few attempts by both of us we backed off in favour of finding something easier. We found a really nice line further up the great slab which provided some really nice climbing at about III/IV. All in all a fine start to the season.


Blue skies, cloud inversion and snow covered fells.
