Half day Rock climbing at Oxford Crag
We set off from The White LIon Inn
Patterdale for a short walk up hill
to Oxford Crag with its stunning
views over Ullswater. The sun
stayed out and we did some good
climbing before heading home for
a spot of lunch.

Helvellyn in the mist (950m or 3117ft)

We did the classic Helvellyn route, taking in Striding then Swirral
Edge. The cloud lifted so we could see Red Tarn and we headed
up Catstye Cam (890m) before returning home. Posted by Picasa

A grand day out on Skiddaw (931m)

We set out on a perfect day to walk over Skiddaw. First we
tackled the long ridge over Ullock Pike, then a bite to eat
to gain energy before the final steep push onto the summit.
From here we headed down & north via waterfalls.

Striding/Swirral Edge & Helvellyn
A windy walk along the Edges
with not as much rain as expected.

rendezvous later before a nice pint of

Rest. A good day on the hill. Posted by Picasa

Helvellyn for Leighton Cook
Today I have been privileged to
guide 10 friends of Leighton
up Helvellyn. This was to raise
money so he can undergo treatment in Germany
for a rare form of leukaemia called neuroblastoma.

Happy 4th Birthday Leighton

Flooding on Ullswater
After 36hrs of rain Ullswater was in spate, however still not as bad as the floods in Jan 2009. This picture was taken from Ullswater Steamers' Glenridding car park (click on photo for more pictures) where we found Sean of Wild River running a canoe course and making use of the extra water.
