Blea Water Gill

I left work at 12pm and met Jonathan in Shap. The road up to the head of Haweswater was extremely icy as was the path up to Blea Water. The route was in excellent condition although there was some water running on the first pitch. The next 4 pitches were great fun with plastic ice and good screw protection as required. We topped out just before dark and descended with head torches. Very enjoyable!
