Shepherds Crag

Hazel in the cave on Donkey's Ears (S)

In an effort to keep stretching Hazel and Steve we opted for Shepherds Crag in Borrowdale. In a similar vien to yesterday they built up slowly through the grades (Donkeys Ears S & Chamonix HS) until they made a very smooth ascent of the tricky Adam (VS 5a) with a couple of preplaced runners. Today I was working for Adventure Peaks
