Braithwaite BBQ Meet 16-17th July

We were spoiled with lots of sunshine this weekend in the Lakes for the club BBQ meet.

Both climbing and walking were able to be enjoyed by members and guests.

On the Saturday, Ken undertook a full day's walking on the ridges surrounding the hut while Chris and Hannah took Alfie (aged 8) on his first multi-pitch route - Quayfoot Buttress in Borrowdale.

A fantastic climb although slightly damp still in places from the recent rain, but with beautiful views throughout! Sarah, Brian and Yvonne joined us Saturday evening for the BBQ - thanks to Sarah for the homemade goodies!

Sunday brought more sunshine and a climbing opportunity for Yvonne and Ken, while the rest of us decided to have an easy day! - Hannah
