Bouldering at The Beacon

Mungo is Angry (V2 5c)

The Beacon sits to the east of Penrith and towers majestically over the second least populated un-parished area after Berwick-upon-Tweed. Upon it's eastward spur is Cowrake Quarry, which is made of red Penrith sandstone.

The quarry is nowhere more than seven meters high and is ideal for the odd hour of bouldering when the sun is shining. The past two days have seen me frequented the quarry, with pad in hand to while away a couple of hours in between lectures and such like.

Good lines, stay safe and see you on the wet stuff...
