This afternoon Graham and I met up for a couple of routes before he headed home in Scotland. As we only had a short amount of time we went to a busy Shepard's Crag in Borrowdale. We avoided the crowd's on Little Chamonix by heading up to Climb The Black Icicle (E1 5b). Its an excellent route with a great second pitch, felt very exposed as it was very run out. We scrambled back down and Graham led up the first pitch of Monolith Crack (HVS 4c) and I took over and led up Porcupine (E3 6a), another great line. Unfortunately Graham had to shoot off but there is plenty more to do here.
