Jan 12 15
After yesterday up on Pavey with glorious blue sunny skies and dry warm rock today was again brilliantly sunny when we rolled out of bed! What’s happening, two great days of weather, in winter, and at the weekend… However, there was a light breeze today and as we packed ready to go out to a Yorkshire limestone crag we noted a few clouds bubbling up. Rock climbing in a breeze without direct sunshine with temperatures hovering just below 0°C would have been painful. So we decided to take full advantage of the day with a scramble up Sharp Edge and Blencathra instead.
We had a great laugh with this next picture, I’d asked Laetitia to strike a “catalogue pose” and this is what she did. What fun! Plus, it made us think of Ian, who first introduced us to the idea of a “catalogue pose”. Hmm, I wonder how construction of the new Halley base is going?
Near the end of the circuit we passed an enclosure of llama. They were every bit as interested in us as we were in them. This guy (?) was particularly curious and immediately ran over to us. I’m not sure if ears-back is a sign if inquisitiveness, begging for food, or aggression? Love the buckteeth though!
