Another angle of Apiary Arete. The reason we have so many shots is because there was only two boulders that were dry, or at least not engulfed in the ocean. Well… There was a 3rd one that we set up for but little to our knowledge there was a gap behind the boulder letting through tsunamis every 5 minutes. Lucky the screams of Metzger warned us in advance to grab the pads before they were washed out to sea.

Will Murphy on Apiary Arete V1 at St Bee’s, one of the weirdest approaches to a crag I’ve ever been on; hoisting 3 pads cameras and food on some fixed ropes on the side of a sea cliff is not an easy task. Especially in 30mph sea wind.

This was the end of our trip in the Lakes, loads of pictures taken and problems sent, what a place. We managed to get the most out of it with the weather being so patchy, when it rained we mountaineered and the few dry spells we had we jumped around on the beautiful boulders the lakes had to offer.
