Bamford Edge

Topping out on the classic Gunpowder Crack VS 5b

For the final day of their rock climbing practical the University of Cumbria outdoor students decided to head up to the secluded Bamford Edge, a sensible decision on a hot and sunny weekend. The day continued in the same vein as the previous two with some outstanding leads showing a huge progression from Thursday. There were ascents of Neb Buttress (HVS, 5a), Gunpowder Crack (VS, 5b), Green Parrot (VS, 5b) and Slopy Side (HVS, 5b) amongst others.
