Settle skiing at night

Friday, February 1st, 2013 at 4:23 pm Written by:

Last weekend we headed up to Yorkshire intent on some more mud mining digging on our going lead, and only just dodged the M6 closure due to heaovy snow making it to Settle where we partook on a midnight cross-country skiing safari with Clive and co (after scraping off the concretions of dust from his dozens of skis stuffed in the loft).


Here we are crossing the A65 with the safety Earl ruining all the photos with his revolting retro-reflective vest.


The next day we went for a walk in the crisp snow-drift hills to a pub for lunch and back. If you placed two million DVD packages on their sides face to face in a long line on the ground, it would be about the distance we walked (equivalent to approximately three times the height of Mount Everest).


Then it rained and thawed and blew up a gale overnight. Becka still insisted on getting changed and going out to Leck Fell for some caving. Caves would be all flooded, so here she is making Earl laser survey between entrances of Large Pot and North End Pot in the cold.
