/ First proper multi pitch advice
Looking for an easyish climb really to just gain experience on the multi pitch side of things
My mate and i both lead Hard Severe so something around VDIFF or lower would probably be a good start !
Looking for advice on a good route please open to anywhere in the lake district but a good walk in would be a bonus !!!
Any other tips greatly appreciated as well
Thanks in advance !
The walk in is pretty good as well.
Don't take loads of gear either. I find long slings handy for setting up belays, and also for protecting spikes etc. A couple of sets of nuts and some screwgates is about all you'll need, along with a small pack for shoes, lunch, jacket.
Just think of it as individual single pitches. It all comes natural, protection is often a lot more run out than single pitch routes though.
Raven Crag Buttress is a good one to start on, or Corvus if you are up for the infamous hand traverse!!
Link up several great multi-pitch climbs on fantastic rock in a quiet and beautiful setting.
Well worth checking out ;)
