The Northern Climbers

Blencathra Via Halls Fell 24th February

Diary 24/02/2013

After a really amazing trip earlier in the month i decided to bring the family over for a long weekend to show them what i had fallen in love with. This was also my first time to lead a climb with a novice in my friend James Marshall. Having done Blencathra earlier in the month i felt confident with the route and that it offered an all round experience for James while keeping a carefull eye on him. Weather was as close to perfect with a light snow covering on the peak. I was hoping the wind was light on the peak so we could have another attempt at Sharps Edge........... will we do it? Also a little added scout of Catbells at the end with the intent of taking th rest of the family up there the next day.
