Birthday Luxury

The fantastic weather continues – another sunny day at Quayfoot Buttress in Borrowdale (no camera = no pix, sorry) on Tuesday, then yet another for Wednesday and White Ghyll in Langdale.

White Ghyll
It was cold when we got to White Ghyll, the sun still hadn’t got round to light and warm up the walls, so we started on the classic Slip Not.

Laetitia takes in the summer scene in Langdale from the top pitch of Slip Not (even though it's still spring and we are in Spain!)

Then the sun made it’s welcome appearance and we moved across to Waste Not, Want Not. I found the moves across on to the wall from the Laugh Not corner quite hard. [Mental note to self: I must stick to the winter training programme more strictly next year, my fingers are too weak.]

Further up the Ghyll we also ticked the favourite Forget Me Not

And here’s a picture for Rebecca and Mina’s memories, a little warmer than when we were here with them a few years ago, the view form the top of White Ghyll across to Harrison Stickle and Pavey Ark.

Birthday Dinner
Wednesday was a short climbing day though ‘cos we had a posh birthday dinner to celebrate in the eneving. Sharrow Bay was the venue. Wow, what a special place!

  1. Happy birthday Tish, looks like you had a fab day! But how is it; it’s your birthday and Pete gets a new shirt ❓ Pic 7 is :star: :star: :star: :star: :star:

  2. Pete bought me a most fantastic green slate cake stand for my birthday. It’s a lovely piece of stone and now has a very lovely victoria sponge cake with whipped cream and strawberries on it. :yum: :yum:
