Well, this is unprecedented – it may actually be TOO HOT TO CLIMB! But at least the crag will be dry.
To avoid the uphill slog in the worst of the heat, I intend to set out from Honister no earlier than 4pm, aiming to be at the crag by around 4.30-ish.
If you want to share a lift from Cockermouth at about 3.20, drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact via KMC Cockermouth WhatsApp ‘lift’ group.
The main attraction at Gillercombe is the classic Gillercombe Buttress, but Grey Knotts Face is an ‘entertaining’ diff, and there is also an excellent scramble.
