A favourable forecast meant a trip over to Wasdale to do Caw fell and Haycock. Ria and Stuart joined us. It is such a drive over to Wasdale but when you have views like this, you know you’re going to have a good day.
My theory is when you have good weather you need to take advantage. We only had Bessyboot to do in the Borrowdale valley and is classified as a Southern Fell in the Wainwright books. It nestles in between the other surrounding fells already climbed. We had mentioned our plan to Gary, who said “mid week … More After work wander up Bessyboot
Still a few to do in the Wainwright Far Eastern fells book. Ray had messaged to see if were going out and what fells we still had to do. So a screen shot sent and he suggested we finish off the remaining ones on the Kentmere horseshoe and 3 on the Hartsop side. This left … More A Hartsop/Kentmere epic adventure
Let the obsession continue……When we were out with Paul and Sian on the 10 in 10, he mentioned that our mutual friends Paul and Karen were coming to the lakes to walk and go to the famous Staveley Beer hall summer beer festival. So we gate crashed and had the day off work and joined … More Plan B
After the previous weeks bagging that just left 3 summits to complete the Wainwright central fells book. To say I’m obsessed is maybe an understatement. The weather forecast was mixed with the threat of a shower. As they say ” no such thing as bad weather just the wrong kit”. Tanya and Ray came along … More The final central fells
With an ok forecast, decided to have an after work walk to do Lingmoor. This was missed as when I’d planned to do it previously, I fell mid walk and damaged my knee. I’m still not sure how I mustered the power to get myself off the hill as the pain was awful.
I had said that after my last walk, that would be it for Wainwright bagging till after I had completed the Brathay marathon. Ermm about that….
I was sat in the New Dungeon Ghyll having my beer reward after climbing Bowfell in the safety of wifi, when a Facebook message came through from Ray. “Are you two out tomorrow?” With tired legs, I asked Dave and we said yes but not an epic walk. Ray asked what northern fells have I … More Another 3 ticked off with the master of the fells
I have wanted to do this walk for awhile and definitely needed a good day for it. So with fingers crossed arranged a twitteratti walk to do this. I like a linear walk and was excited about the prospect of ticking off 10 Wainwrights, though I have done Helvellyn before.
It’s been a busy week of walking, living in the lakes you have to take advantage when you can. So with a window of opportunity on Saturday afternoon, decided to do Raven Crag, High Tove and Armboth fell.
