Christmas Camping trip

Just after Xmas, I went for a few days camping at Great Langdale – a couple of walks, the obligitary outdoor stores in Ambleside, a few pints of Old Peculiar at the Old Dungeon Ghyll and sub zero temperatures. The walking was good – we did Stickle Tarn round to the Back of Pavey Ark and onto High Raise, and an easy womble around theAmbleside area the next day. Temperatures dropped as low as -7 overnight, freezing the tent and the outside of my second sleeping bag! Aside from Nige setting the tent on fire, it all went very well.

Heres a few pics from the trip:



Mountain Rescue

This was a Heli lifting someone off the fell side who had apparently lost it and become stuck to the Crag in fear of falling off. THats the rumour I heard anyway – it was long way off and this photo is uncropped at 450mm focal length.
