Esk Pike Flora/Scramble

Carpet, originally uploaded by lenoclimb.

More rainy days in the Lakes. Time to tick off a few missing Wainwrights; Rossett Pike and Esk Pike. The later by a grade 2 scramble along the North West Spur. Grey, humid, spits, spots. But under foot and hand a wealth of treats for a wild flower freak like myself.

Holme Fell Scrambling

Some photos from this evenings trip out. A sunny scramble up the ridge of  Raven Crag (Yewdale), then over the top of Holme Fell and down to Hodge Close.  A nice way to tick a wee small Wainwright ( 317m) by using a grade 1/2 scramble.

Raven Crag Yewdale

The scramble takes the ridge above the crag – very grippy rock in the hot sun. Unfortunately the crag itself has nesting restrictions until the end of June. Wonder if the rock is the same?
