Crinkle Crags via "The Bad Step" & "The Climbers Traverse" The Wainwright challenge series part 2. A classic outing from the national trust campsite langdale incorporating the Bad Step and descending Bowfell via "The climbers traverse". Comment. Allow 6 to 7 hours for this outing. An early strenuous climb chucks you up high quickly and then the going is pretty easy across the crinckles. The bad step is easy with a little exposure when you come out onto the right rib. A strenuous climb up onto bowfell and then a precarious descent down past the great slab (good conditions should be sought). The final leg is "The climbers traverse". This is by far the best high level ledge traverse in the lake district. Good clear weather is what you want for this to appreciate the setting. This is not for the feint hearted as exposure is consderable in parts and a slip in the wrong place would be disastorous. In winter conditions an ice axe and crampons/rope is essential for the descent off Bowfell past the great slab and then again required for the climbers traverse. This was our first time on the traverse and i wouldn't want to be on it in windy/wet conditions. The traverse is last leg of the walk and most folks will be feeling tired ,however its important that your concentration levels are at their highest for this bit. Once off the traverse you can relax and enjoy the descent down the band.
Castle Crag - Lake District May 2007 A Wainwright, but a small one. I think this is one of the best, even in the rain.
End of a fire on the Crags Just managed to catch the tail end of a fire on the slopes of the Crags in Holyrood Park in Edinburgh. Rather annoyed I didn't see more of it, really.

Read the full blog here: This blog preview was made by TravelPod using the TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow creator. Entry from: Dalhousie, India Entry Title: "Head for the hillstation" Entry: "after the wedding, gordon and i decided that we needed a bit of a break from the chaos of India, and to recover from the coughs and colds that had been plaguing us since the retreat. since we were so close already (much further north than we had expected to come in India), it seemed that we might as well see a bit of the Himalayas. it appeared we had 2 very Scottish sounding options: McLeod Ganj, where the Dalai Lama and refuge Tibetan government have settled, or Dalhousie, a hill station which was most commonly described to us as "very peaceful", usually uttered in a slightly disapproving tone. the choice seemed clear, and when we arrived at the bus station, there was a bus just about to depart for Dalhousie - we jumped on. it was off season, and definitely the chilliest place we will likely be during this trip - probably around 4 degrees at night and 15 during the day. we were lucky though, as this time last year they had 10 feet of snow! there was no snow in Dalhousie but the views of the snow-capped peaks were beautiful and it was very peaceful - we ended up staying almost a week, mostly just pottering about town, going for little walks, eating and reading our books, and at night huddling in bed under the thick blankets ...

Crinkle Crags, Bowfell & Esk Pike - 27 March 2011 This is a 9.2 mile walk starting from the valley of Great Langdale which follows Oxendale before climbing besides Browney Gill to round Great Knott. The route then follows the ridge containing the Crinkle Crags, including Bad Step on Long Top. After the Crinkle Crags we climbed Bowfell, visiting "Great Slab" on route before hoping over to Est Pike. Finally the walk involved a descent to Angle Tarn before a short climb over Rossett Pike to descend by the side of Rossett Gill and finally following Mickleden Beck back to our start at the National Trust car park. This walk was taken from "Thewalkingenglishman" website. A great place to find walks. The walk was carried out on 27 March 2011 at the start of Greenwich Summer Time. It took us just over 7 hours (with plenty of breaks for photographs). Music is by Elbow and the records are The Stops, Weather to Fly & Lippy Kids. It helps I saw them in Manchester 2 days earlier, excellent concert!!!

On this day as well as the two 'Wainrights' Dave also did the peak of Great Knott, thereby bagging 3 peaks on day 3. PLEASE NOTE THIS FILM (Part 3) is in two segments due to it's length.
Seven Star Crags Park, Zhaoqing, China The Seven Star Crags are located at the fringe of Zhaoqing City, Guangdong, China. They adjoin the Star Lake and form one of the most scenic locations in the province. The limestone crags are naturally arranged in the same formation as the seven stars of the Big Dipper constellation. Legend has it that the pillars of limestone grew from stars that fell from the skies. There are a number of caves in this 8 square kilometers area and some contain underground rivers that are large enough to navigate by boat. The Star Lake has been designated a national park. Numerous sculptures of Buddhism and Taoizm idols are placed around the Star Lake. There is also a reserve for migratory birds within reach by boat ride. It is often described as the "Number One Wonder in South China". The picturesque landscape wins it the reputation of "Owning both limestone peaks in Guilin and the water of West Lake in Hangzhou". The lakeside Crags overgrown on their southern sides with dense evergreen sub-tropical plants are typical of the South China landscape. The Seven-Star Crags is famous for its "lush mountain, exquisite waters, perilous cliffs and fascinating caves".

Nokhu Crags - Grand Central Couloir This climb had been on my wish list since I first laid eyes on it during a 2004 ascent of Iron Mountain. I was able to coax Fabio and Charles away from Boulder to come up to my "stomping grounds" for the attempt. We made it to top of the couloir but rapidly deteriorating snow conditions forced us to beat a hasty retreat without tagging the summit. We made it down to safety just in time to witness both Grand Central Couloir and Nokhuloir erupt in wet slide avalanches!

Turntable Bay and Castle Crags Driving home to the Rogue Valley (Southern Oregon) via I-5 through Northern California, I decided to take some pictures of and near Turntable Bay and Castle Crags along the way. This was the weekend before Thanksgiving, 2009. I hope you enjoy the scenery! The Bay was unusually sunny as we drove down to take a few pictures, and Castle Crag was very dark, wet, and misty. They were beautiful. Music: Fly - Nick Drake

Birds of Eden, in the Crags on the Garden Route of South Africa Via /birdsofeden Birds of Eden is the world's biggest free flight aviary. It is in essence a sanctuary for unwanted birds from all over the world. Many were shoulder pets before, like most of the parrots you'll find here. Others were donated by zoos and even companies like Disneyland. The aviary is over two hectares in size and netting stretches 34 metres into the sky above. Birds of Eden is located in the Crags right next to the primate sanctuary monkeyland, on the Garden Route of South Africa, close to the small town of Nature's Valley.
