/ Langdale area routes with points of aid
I'll obviously also just go exploring and trying stuff out but any suggestions for cool things to go at (thinking mostly free with a roof-crack crux or similar, or even a funky hard crack pitch) would be appreciated :)
The one that springs to mind is Fine Time on Raven Crag: a short crux roof with much easier climbing (5b or so) above. You might struggle with Trilogy as the technical crux getting off the ground isn't protectable without pegs. Eastern Hammer should be clean aidable as well, after all it was originally an aid route.
If you want to do everyone a service then Heartsong on Pavey needs a clean :-)
1984 on Flat Crags
Spiney Norman (can't remember the crag name now!)
Just be careful you don't end up leaving gear or trashing the route getting stuff out.
Tongue partly in cheek, Bowfell Butress in the sleet will seem pretty much like 5c in places !
There is no way I'm going up BB in the snow, the slightest dusting of snow and I'll be dodging axes the whole way ;)
