Langdale Boulders and Route 1 on Upper Scout Crag
I was properly psyched for todays bouldering session at Langdale Boulders. First I checked out alleged dry tooling marks and they are definitely there.
Crack on the top boulder has marks and chips on it. Needles to say it isn't a great sight. But let's not even go there...
Bouldering session didn't go well (not mine anyway) so me and Matt went to the Upper Scout Crag just down the road from the boulders. I had in mind easy multi pitch route – Route 1. 50 meters and HVD it was a nice treat for my cold and numb fingers after bouldering.
Route starts just left of Yew tree and below a large Holly. First short pitch leads through slabby grooves to the base of the arête, where you can belay. I actually went little higher and belayed of one of the trees. Second pitch takes you over the block and to the right onto an arête. This is one of the best pitches of its grade in Langdale and is beautifully exposed. After few difficulties you can belay on one of the ledges. Route 1 it's a great easy route for those just starting out or as an introduction to multi pitch climbing.
