Langdale camping meet – June 24-26.
10 of us gathered for this meet in Langdale, some on the quiet and luxurious National Trust campsite, others in the nearby Fell and Rock club hut. On Saturday, some went climbing, either on Gimmer Crag [cold and windy] or the lower and warmer Raven Crag. A group of 5 decided to scramble up the beautiful Crinkle Gill, using a variety of climbing techniques [see pictures] eventually finishing along the ridge and Pike of Blisco. In the evening we gathered outside the New Dungeon Ghyll, entertained by, and applauding, the passing ‘Iron’ men and women completing their final marathon section towards Ambleside. Sunday saw more climbing; 3 did alternate leads on a 3 pitch route on Raven Crag, while 2 others went to Upper Scout Crag where they ended up practising their abseil technique from a convenient tree. Others headed for coffee and the shops of Ambleside, before rain encouraged all of us homewards. Vanda Boyd
