Lower Falcon Crag

Wednesday was the first of this summer’s CC evening climbing meets in the Lakes. Thankfully the weather was perfect – sunny, warm, and of course dry. Hooray! Strangely with such lovely conditions only a select gang bothered to turn up. I wonder if it was the choice of venue? Lower Falcon Crag in Borrowdale is not the most friendly crag and has very little to go at in the easier grades. Perhaps the next meet on the 11th June at the super friendly Black Crag on Pike o’Blisco will be more popular…

  1. Yes and lower Falcon Crag is terrifying, even the easier grade routes feel quite serious, although maybe the fact that I was wearing borrowed climbing shoes 4 sizes bigger than my feet might not have helped!
