Today the Watson's Massive went paddling to break the week up. Mhairi and I opted to go cragging instead. The overnight rain and early drop off meant we headed up to Shepard's. This was Mhairi's first time at the crag so we climbed the classics on Fisher's Folly Buttress as things dried out. As the sun got hotter we found a little shade on Battering Ram. Although this is an eliminate, it offered to excellent 5c pitches and is worth a look. We met the group back in Keswick for icecream then went back for tea.
After tea we went to Moss Crag in the Honister Pass with the 4 older lads. Mhairi, Richard and I led them up a route each to finish the day nicely with the sun setting behind us.
