Mellbreak with Ian
Loweswater, Cumbria, United Kingdom
Ian was over from Seascale and so I let him suggest a fell for today's walk. He is gradually completing his second round of 214 Wainwright Fells and mentioned that Mellbreak south top was yet to do. So that was decided !Full pictures and report @http://www.loweswatercam.co.uk/100504_Mellbreak_with_Ian.htm
Lake District: Walla Crag
Cumbria, United Kingdom
Warm and mainly dry. Slight drizzle at the end This was supposed to be an afternoon stroll to get us acclimatised to walking in the lakes, but ended up being more lengthy than anticipated. We left at 13:25 to wander up to Walla Cragg for a pastie and ended up going on to Bleaberry Fell, High Seat, Dodd and Ashness Bridge before heading back for Walla Cragg and back to our accomodation at the Heights Hotel at...
Lake District: Cat Bells
This is the classic walk in the Lake District. Its nice and easy, has a little bit of scrambling, and fantastic views. We avoided the weekend though as it can be a bit of a procession!This walk was however a nightmare for Mark. He had given himself to much insulin and ended up with low blood sugar throughout the day. The result was that he seemed to be like a chieften tank...
Mount Robinson and around Buttermere Lake
Buttermere, England, United Kingdom
This was a spontaneous trip to Buttermere in the Lake District. The road there goes through many one-lane roads, with breathtaking sceneries, passing meadows with sheep and cows, pretty little villages, bars and B&B's. Buttermere itself is rather a small village, all in Tudor style buildings, with accommodation and dining available.At the entrance of the village, there is a small path going up the hill, and from there, one has a phantastic...
High Street from Hartsop
Patterdale, Cumbria, England
Today was one of those extraordinary bright clear days which makes the experience of winter walking so much better than at any other season of the year. It was however to be saddened on my return home to hear on the news that a 55yr old man from Preston had fallen 200ft from a ledge on a scramble from Blea Water to High Street that afternoon.This area is part of the Martindale...

Lorton, Cumbria, United Kingdom
The whole object of the this walk is to tackle the imposing presence of Grasmoor's 'Great End' above the road at Lanthwaite Green. At first sight it doesn't seem possible that there is a walkers route up this formidable obstacle. There is a grade 3 scramble, but this is NOT that route. The best description of the route as always is by Wainwright - 'Grasmoor 6' -Book 6 - North Western Fells. You...
