Evening Entertainment

The Lime Kiln below Cumrew Crag.

The weather has really picked up over the past few days which meant that yesterday I was able to swap an evening watching the Britain's Got Talent semi-finals for a spot of climbing on one of the many small outcrops on offer in the Eden Valley. The small outcrop that got my attention was Cumrew Crag, which involved a relatively long walk-in up a steep hill, but it rewarded you for your efforts as there were a handful of lovely VS's as well as some stuff in the lower grades. Also when you turned your back on the crag you could pick out the Lakeland Peaks in the distance and much of the Eden Valley as well as the Solway Firth.

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