Borrowdale

A weekend’s climbing in the Lake District with Durham University Mountaineering Club.

The Bowder Stone is a massive lump of rock carried along by a glacier and dropped conspicuously up on the valley side. It looks delicately balanced, like a die that landed on its edge. The climbers underneath are planning bouldering routes.

I always like those trees that seem to grow out of nothing.
