Diary 24/02/2013 After a really amazing trip earlier in the month i decided to bring the family over for a long weekend to show them what i had fallen in love with. This was also my first time to lead a climb with a novice in my friend James Marshall. Having done Blencathra earlier in the month i felt confident with the route and that it offered an all round experience for James while keeping a carefull eye on him. Weather was as close to perfect with a light snow covering on the peak. I was hoping the wind was light on the peak so we could have another attempt at Sharps Edge........... will we do it? Also a little added scout of Catbells at the end with the intent of taking th rest of the family up there the next day.

Diary 03/02/13 Belncathra is the first impressive fell you see coming into the lakes on the A66. As you approach you can see Sharps edge on the East side from the A66. The best place to park is in Threlkeld, we started from the Blencathra Centre. From the Blencathra Centre it is a short half hour walk past Gatesgill to the foot of Halls Fell. Blencathra offers everything from steep incline walking, to grade 1-2 scrambling. With its impressive views across the Northern Fells Blencathra offers a great all round experience of climbing and have to say is my favorite climb so far.
