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.
So on the way home from the Strands in Wasdale, there were 3 more Wainwrights in mind to do on the way home. Fuelled up with a hearty breakfast off we set to drive to the summit of Hardnott pass.
A gorgeous evening and perfect opportunity for an evening walk to tidy up some wainwrights. Tanya, Tilly and Gary came to join us. We arranged to meet at the bottom of Haweswater.
After ticking off quite a few in this area over the last few weeks, it left Catstye cam as the only one left to complete in the Wainwright’s Eastern fell book. I can’t believe we left it out when we climbed Helvellyn via the edges. Back then, I wasn’t in obsessed bagging mode. Plus for … More Final Eastern fell – Catstye Cam

Let the Wainwright obsession continue…….. With a busy training running week, it should have been a “rest” day but I decided that I would squeeze in a walk. So the Sheffield Pike round was the plan.
Having a day off during the week is twice as nice. The last holiday day of this financial year was booked in. We had decided to do Holme fell and then go to one of our favourite places “The Drunken Duck” for lunch.
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
With a favourable forecast, sent messages out to friends to join us on a walk in the North western fells. Taking in Whiteside, Hopegill head, Grisedale Pike and Whiteless pike.
