The second of three days out in Langdale, as a mountaineering way up to Gimmer. It was an achingly hot day! We skipped pitch one, took the "direct" variation on pitch 3, and continued up the scramble to the top. A highlight, apart from watching kestrels below, was watching a very well-trained dog accompanying a Climb365 instructor - it sent each pitch before waiting at the belay for its master.

Started round the corner from the chimney to the right via the right-most crack on the buttress. Should have split the second (45m) pitch into two, or done as the guide book said, as I belayed far back on the large ledge below the final pitch and ran out of rope (on a 60m single). Creative extending required to belay from the edge. The guide *does* say to belay below the large ledge... but when I see a ledge the tendency is to climb onto it and then not climb back down.

Nice romp with Detta. Skipped first pitch to avoid traffic and abseiled from top of pitch two to avoid a long walk, though did pitch three in two pitches so Detta would get a taste for multipitch. The abseil was fine, except for rope getting tangled and Detta swearing she'd never abseil again after her first ever abseil...

After rain but the rock was fast drying. Very easy climb, more of a scramble at the top which was good as there wasn't any great gear. Abseiled off at the tree, good tat already around the tree which saves leaving any behind. Did it in two pitches, almost short of rope at the top which left my options for setting up a belay quite narrow!

First successful multi-pitch lead entirely by ourselves, nobody helping! I suppose it was quite easy really - lovely big ledges for belays - just a succession of single pitch climbs basically. Did it with rucksacs and scrambled on upwards to the top of the hill (about Grade 1, so can unrope and boot up at the end of the official climbing). Perfect day for weather too.
