Forum meet, T/R Helvellyn.
« on: 22:25:29, 09/10/11 »
First thing i would like to do. Is to thank everyone, who turned up to the first meet i have listed.

Driving over on the Friday. Hardnott pass was looking fantastic.





The Fri night in the pub was shaping up nicely as well.




Now for the start of it. Meeting in the car park.



Everyone ready for the off.



A few pics from the climb up and surrounding hills.








Looking up to the clag.



Yorksgirl would only have her pic taken if someone would pull her pants tight  ;)



The group spilt as the fitter ones went ahead.
We meet up together just below the Hole in the wall.




Extra layers were put on and food and drinks taken on board.
I have to say the Yeti mate had the right idea. He was supping a bottle of Vodka.

Through the hole in the wall and into the clag again.






The clag was really bad. My glasses were steaming up and getting covered in rain.
I was struggling to see and didnt fancy tripping on this.



So i decided to take the lower path.

Yeti and Swampy cam with me.




Some pics of Humperlumper and Old Climber coming down the bad step.




Thats the last of the photos as it was just to wet to keep the camera out.

Old Climber helped me get around the chimney.
He was also there to help me find a way down Swirral Edge. Thanks for that pal O0

Then it was a steady walk down hill back to the car park.

A very wet day lots of clag, but bloody hell was it good.

A great couple of days spent in the company of a great group.
Great to meet up with old and new people of the site.

I will try to pick one with good weather next time  ;)

Looks like you all had a good day but I'm not sure I'd fancy being up on that kind of ridge in that kind of weather!!

I'm thinking Yorksgal and Oldclimber must have brought the clag with them from Crib Goch. ::)   

Bet you all enjoyed it anyway O0

Humperlumper has some brilliant videos of the meet including a few ripping the .... out of me. I was the cabaret act. He has one of me dancing and Ruth has one of me singing and they are both out on the hills not in the pub.
