Wednesday I went along to take photos and video of Mike and Tom.K attempting to lead E3 route, Battering Ram. They got to the second belay point then had to detour up an easier route. So a fail for their first attempt. After getting down they had a go at soloing another part I think it was called Pinnacle something.

Today for our practical session we had bush-craft! This consisted of all things Ray Mears style, fire lighting, skinning rabbits, cooking and shelter making. Here is Craig and Miles throwing away one of the rabbits we decided not to cut up and eat as when it was shot its bottom exploded into its-self.

I went to the rally in Whinlatter forest yesterday. Miles, Craig, Louisa and I had decided not to stand on the corner where there was a deffinate chance of being ran over however where we were stood it was still scary when the cars were correcting themselves as they would straighten up towards you then shoot past. We saw a number of cars do the same thing as this one did.

Our final climbing practical day was spent at Shephards Crag near Keswick. Throughout the day we rigged up some abseils then we all climbed up Little Chamonix which took longer then expected then took photos of people top roping the last section. These were the best three photos from the day. It was very foggy making the pictures seem over exposed in the sky. A really enjoyable day the pictures would have been amazing if it had been clear.
This last picture is quite good one for summarising our course, laying and hanging about!
