Cam Crag Ridge - the classic Lake District scramble that is graded 1, 2 or 3. Just choose your own route!
Today it was, unsurprisingly, a bit of a wet ascent. But Katie and Anthony really enjoyed their first taste of scrambling AND their first day out in the Lake District fells.
There is an awful lot of water sloshing about, and I said I'd show them Black Moss Pot. I explained that it was well worth a visit in summer but that there would be no way anyone would be in it today. How wrong I was.
There are still a couple of places available on my Silver NNAS course next weekend, 24-25 October. The course will be held on the moors around Ilkley where we have a great combination of complex contour features and open featureless moorland for compass work.
This course is a great way to sharpen the skills for the coming winter season. It's also perfect for those contemplating the ML Training course in the near future. While it's not a compulsory requirement, the Silver NNAS is the standard of navigation that you should be comfortable with to get the most out of ML Training. thesummitisoptional.com/navigation/nnas-award-silver/...
