Lily Tarn and Loughrigg Fell
Ambleside, England, United Kingdom
We meet up with Bill and Sherran in the South Lakes and walk a popular fell but by a route we have never done.Brilliant weather turns a bit cloudy so a warm afternoon cuppa at the Britania was favoured over the more traditional beverage.Full report and pictures @http://www.loweswatercam.co.uk/100309_Lily_&_Loughrigg.htm
Catbells - Maiden Moor - High Spy - Castle Crag Circular
Braithwaite, England, United Kingdom
This is a lovely walk in any weather - but better when clear (it was hazey for me!).The walk included no less than 4 Wainwright Fells - Catbells, Maiden Moor, High Spy and Castle Crag.

Elterwater, England, United Kingdom

The north ridge route is varied - woodland,...

There is loads of on street parking around, so we wont be making that mistake again. We set out at 11:30 and started the climb. It was a steep, almost from the start! Mark was slow, but nowhere near as slow as he had been at the start of...
