A gale tossed and showery day in the Lakes toda. On Sal's recommendation (hmmph) Liz and I went to Dow Crag to climb Giant's Crawl. The wind was strong enough to be whipping the tops off of the whitecaps on Goatswater beneath the crags but at least it was a little more sheltered at the base. The route was pleasant enough if made more challenging by the incredible greasy nature of the rock. We topped out into the gale again to run back to Ambleside for well deserved Hot Chocolate, Blueberry Scones, Cream and Jam!
