Great End revisited – great views

Work cancelled¬† and the forecast of some decent weather saw me tick off another revisit to a Wainwright where I’d had no views previously – my revisit list is now down to 7 walks. I’ll be glad to be done so I’ll have the views recorded for each of the 214 Wainwrights on my site. [...]

High Pike and Carrock Fell revisited

A chance to walk once more, eagerly taken as the weather forecast was good. It was to be another revisit to High Pike and Carrock Fell as my previous visits were marred by low cloud. I walked this way on the Cumbria Way and did the identical walk with my mate Paul (he made up [...]

Another Lakeland revisit – Bowfell via the Great Slab, Crinkle Crags and the Pike of Blisco.

30th April -  around 10 miles and 3900ft of ascent. Not a drop of rain on my head.  One of the most beautiful parts of the Lake District that I have had the pleasure of walking many times. I revisited today as the weather was so fine to capture a murk free Climbers Traverse and [...]

Fleetwith Pike revisited

Continuing in my revisited cloudy summits, this time was a very early turnout for a visit to Fleetwith Pike. I didn’t take my big camera as I’d been up half the nighjt with my grandaughter who was staying over – first time away from home. Needless to say she woke at 1 and 3am, and [...]

Mellbreak revisited

A few weeks ago – last month actually I walked up to Mellbreak and Hen Comb from the Kirkstile Inn. An evening stroll produced fine light over Grasmoor and Whiteside, before a few bottles of Wainwright Ale hit the spot. The morning promised plenty as the sky was blue and it was nice and crisp. [...]

At last – it’s clear blue skies ahead. Nice up on Scafell as well….

It’s been a long time since my last post…yet again. I’ve been a bit busy this year as you can tell by the lack of trip reports and it’s a long story. It starts with an unsolicited email from a local estate agent – ‘I’ve got someone who like to look at your house with [...]

Great Bourne revisited

Another visit to a previous cloudy vista. This time the High Stile Ridge from Buttermere. Up to Great Bourne then along the ridge via Starling Dodd, red Pike, High Stile and High Pike. A cracking walk with Paul, Glyn and Anna despite trailing behind for most of the day. Just as well I like looking [...]

Green Crag revisited

I finally finished walking the Wainwrights earlier this year and decided that future walks in the Lake District would be to revisit some of the ones where I didn’t get the views due to inclement weather. A good excuse if ever I heard one. I am in the process of moving house soon and this [...]

Seat Sandal – round 2!!

In stark contrast to the last time we were up here, when we didn’t see anything but clag and false summits. We made the mistake that day of walking up the SW grassy ridge – which went on and on and on..etc This time around Cogstar had designed a squashed butterfly shape of a walk, [...]
