Helm Crag – Meet Report
That was an interesting afternoon/evening with lots of us managing to find parking and the not too frequented crag. There are some good climbs and quite a lot of loose rock and moss with most routes seeming quite high in the grade. Members present were, Phil, John M, myself, Judith, Mark, Bob, Matt, Ian N, Gavin, Jonny, Piers and Haresh. Climbs completed were Ion, Skyglow, Secret no more, Beacon Crack, Holly Tree Crack (going into Flarepath due to wet rock!) Bentley and Pathfinder. After a very hot evenings climbing we made our way back to the Lancrigg Hotel for a drink and chat. Some of the words used to describe the crag included ‘esoteric’ (Judith) ‘climby’ (Ian) and ‘sliding scale’? (Matt) you can tell which one went to Oxford!
