About three years ago we built a bouldering / climbing wall in the outer Barn, many of our visitors might not know its there as its mainly the school groups that use it - I've posted a couple of photos below.
I spent yesterday morning working on the wall with one of the residential groups & then took another group gorge walking in Stoneycroft Gill during the afternoon. The walk in was slow & busy as many others were using the gorge. The weather was unseasonally cool. These two factors gave me the opportunity & stimulus to reflect on some great days out in this area last winter (some pictures below). As summer draws to a close my mind is already wandering to autumn & winter days out in the fells; emerging from caves in the dark & hopefully a little more time on the water this year...........................................
