With the temperature at last rising, we decided to get the weekend off to a good start by heading for Headend Quarry, just a few minutes away. It is limestone, very polished and quite short, but enough for a few hours of fun.
The views, north to the Solway and south to the Northern fells are breathtaking.
Andy and Sabiene had never abseiled before, so it was a good place to practice, and they both had a go at leading, a first for Sabiene.

Sarah polished off the HVS, but found the E1 a little harder. It gave Andy a good lesson in keeping your wits about you when belaying….. or maybe wear a cricket box. He was still smarting 30 minutes later in the pub…
Here’s Andy’s near miss…….
Here’s a late evening view from the crag…..
