HSX Ad+Venture 2015

Another jam packed weekend of adventure in the Lakes! Over 40 participants descended on Great Tower Activity Centre for the annual HSX trip. 

Day 1 (Good Friday) saw the hills shrowded in mist so a day of walking on Wetherlam, Old Man of Coniston and Kentmere Ring was enjoyed by three groups with lots of navigation skills being tested. The Antartica team spend the morning together discussing plans before mountain biking on the other side of Lake Windermere. 

On day 2 a team of climbers headed over the border into Yorkshire for some single pitch climbing whilst the rest headed into the Langdales with one group multi pitch climbing on Gimmer and Raven Crag and a group of athletes representing TeamHSX in a FRA Fell Race to the top of Harrison Stickle and back.  

 

On Saturday evening a team camped out under amazingly clear skies a Grizedale tarn and woke up to an awesome sunrise above the clouds before waking the Hevellyn ridge.  

The rest of the group split on Sunday with some exploring underground caving in Yorkshire; a group walking the Fairfield horseshoe and others multipitching on Castle Rock. 

Lakes 2015 saw everyone have an amazing time with lots of varied adventurous activites!
