A Lost World

High House Crag has been on my hit list for a long while, so I could not wait any longer, even putting off a trip to Oak Crag with Ram-Man to test out the sloper on the Oak Wall project - for me the crag and surrounding boulders were worth the 40 minute walk in!
Right Hand End High House Crag
The stunning landscape that High House Wood and Tarn Hole are hidden away in is pretty awe-inspiring, as were the bouders scattered around the woods and beyond - The crag itself contains some big roofs with steep landings but for a change they had holds under the roof with some projects to go back for.
After a big sweep of the crag and the woods, the boulders to the North East, outside the wood looked like a good place to start, after spying a Font like block resembling and Elephant. it turned out to have three quality lines on it, and more lines around to keep us entertained.

Great effort from Steve as he had packed his shoes away and whipped them out and quickly dispatched the last move in style.

Another problem on the Hagg House Boulders ,Quality bouldering on good rock, back again soon with a rope! to give High House Crag some attention.
