You wouldn't think...

Setting off on Bilberry Buttress (VS 4c).

That it was nearly the middle of November. I was out climbing down in the Langdales on Raven Crag Buttresses today with the university. It was one of the best days climbing I've had in a long while. We ticked off two multi-pitch routes during the day and climbed these in groups of three so we could practice client management and such like on big, long routes. I think the pictures do the day more justice than any words could.

On the first pitch of Bilberry Buttress (VS 4c).

Looking down the Langdale Valley.

Belaying at the top of the second pitch of Saverneck (S, 4a).

Heading for home after an amazing day.

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