There’s something relaxing

About water

Even when it’s belting through the lake district

Ahhhhhhh

Nicer from the warmth of my bed

Wet weather plans- Cathedral Cave

So on the pretence of a friends birthday and due to foul weather we headed off into the lakes. The weather really was manky.

I’m not sure the van option was a great idea as 80mph winds were rocking it to the edge.

But we set off over the tops , battered drenched but happy 

We wandered through the old copper mines, it’s incredible to think of the guys literally teeing through mountains. And that rock is hard! We made it into Cathedral Cave, is hoped it was still bolted but looks like the National trust don’t want climbing in there. Still stunning though

We made it back through various quarries in time for cake alcohol and games 

And don’t  mess with the girls

Snowdon via crib goch

Ok ok ok I know many people climb Snowdon and a fair few go via Crib Goch bit this was a fabulous walk with friends, an ecvellentbstag do in fact. I’d be warned that Crib Goch was scary and given my issues with drops and high places I was more than a little nervous but it was absolutely fine. The weather was a little misty but cleared as we climbed.

It was great to head out with some people who had never done a ridge before and the entire party made it with mild whimpering

We even got the stag to the top which was fabulous. 3hrs 45 up. And we them ran off from the top back to the car park in around 45minutes.

The best thing my knees held together with no pain which gives me hope for more walking. On the list: national three peaks, blencathra via sharp edge and schiehallion.
