First Summer Evening Walk and First Outdoor Climbing for all - Fairy Steps.

A pleasant evening's weather for the first evening walk and outdoor climbing of the year. The walkers met up at the Ship Inn at Sandside and led by Hugh and Angie walked up Haverbrack Bank to the Dog Holes, which cavers know as Haverbrack Pot. The 12m shaft was excavated in the 1950's by Milnthorpe Scouts, and subsequently dug deeper in the 1980's by John Slater, Robin Whitham, and Hugh. The Fairy Steps were soon reached via crossing Cockshot Lane and Beetham Fell. The return was made via Haverbrack and the wonderful view up the estuary. Drinks were taken in the Ship with the climbers joining up with the walkers.
A good start to the outdoor evening calendar.
