Anyone wanting an easy days climbing tomorrow let me know, just getting back into it after injury and then been ill so looking at dales and Vdiff/severe
Eleven of us (plus 3 dogs) set off from Sedbergh and as we made our way along the valley towards Cautley under grey misty skies those of a pessimistic nature may have thought it was not a day to be on the hills
however there was no such thoughts from CMC and shortly after the ascent up the hillside by Cautley Spout the skies started to clear and blue skies appeared.
Various lines of approach were made to get to the top but most seem to involve deep snow at some point.
Once reformed and with lunch on board we headed up to The Calf trig point.
Upon leaving The Calf the mist had rolled in and we headed along the ridge in atmospheric conditions with the sun threatening to break through
We followed the ridge passing Arant Haw by which time the sun was begging to set
After a brief stop we left the main ridge and headed down to Sedbergh getting back before the necessity of a headtorch was required. Many thanks to John for organising the walk. T’was a grand day out.
A few more photos are on my facebook page (you don’t need a facebook account to view them)
Anyone wanting a shortish (7ish miles) I will be doing Pen y Ghent and Plover Hill from Horton In Ribbblesdale. I will be at the Cafe in Horton at 10.30
I am posting this on behalf of Chris Vernon (new member but has been a member in past).

After a somewhat changeable day weatherwise the sun came out for us for this evening ride. So with blue skies around John, Shirley and myself set off from Boss Moor and our ride took us over a serious of Bridleways before the first lung buster that took us to Weets Top.
From Weets Top our efforts were rewarded with a lovely downhill section to Winterburn Reservoir. Alas what goes down soon goes back up and so it was a final push that saw us back at Boss Moor. A short (8 miles) but most enjoyable ride out with all the downhills in the right place. Thanks to John for organising it.
