A weekend with Aylesbury Climbing Club at Little Langdale had been committed to when the weather forecast was still pretty good so we were a little disappointed as the week went on and the forecast gradually got worse & worse. Anyhow just to prove you should never cancel anything based purely on the weather forecast we realised that to get any climbing in an early start was required. Someone in the bunk room helped us out but forgetting they had set their alarm for SIX AM
Kay & John King joined us being the only other two ready early enough and we managed to be on the Rock by 8:30am. This was a fine climb and Fiona & I managed to top out just as the rain arrived on cue at 11:30, with John & Kay just behind, Kay unfortunately having to climb the final pitch in the wet. The nasty looking weather did not inspire us for further adventure so we wandered over to stickle tarn & down for beer & cake at the ODG.
Sunday was a total washout and after the obligatory gear shop in Ambleside we stopped off for tea & cake at Pete & Tish’s (thanks guys) before heading home.
