Hardknott Crag 30th May

Me and Graeme had Hardknott Crag to ourselves today. Not many folk around for a Bank holiday weekend.
I got some air time on Copenhagen (twice) and then my Camera decided to launch itself off the crag. I came off a bit better than the camera... Hence no Photo's today.

Powerglide E4,6a **
Intrusion HVS,5a **

Well worth a visit.
