Back home!

Today Graham and I headed down into Borrowdale and up to Black Crag. The crag was very busy with teams on Troutdale Pinnacle, Raindrop, Prana (one climber took big fall near the top). It was very hot and humid so the short walk in was quite sweaty. We started off on The Mortician (HVS 5a), we then climbed Raindrop (E1 5b) which has a great 3rd pitch. Thunder storms were passing near by so we decided to head over to Shepard's and climbed MGC (E2 5c) and whilst I was climbing up, very large rumbles of thunder were right above us, so after finishing the route and getting back to the bags, we bailed back to the car. The heavens then opened on Borrowdale.
