True North, Shepherds Crag
After another gloomy trip to the lakes, Shepherds was again the driest rock in Lakeland! After completing Adam(VS), we decided to abb down. Sliding down the rope i fell on a blank looking slab, with little edges making its way up the hanging Slab. It looked great, After a quick look in the guidebook and finding out it was given "only" E2 i headed up. The crux seemed to be getting onto the slab, but better holds were soon gained and protection. I once again found a soft touch and quickly made a belay to bring my friend Adam up. A perfect route for your first E2.
