I've been preoccupied with my own cross-border trip the other way recently.You certainly picked a good round for your first Wainwrights, and a visit to a beautiful tarn, Sprinkling Tarn, too. You got some nice pictures of Great Gable and Blencathra as well as the hills you climbed.

It's also possible to find some quieter roues in Lakeland.

You were probably safer going into Lord's Rake this year than you would have been a few years ago. There's a chockstone in there that will fall at some point, though.


No worries Simon. May I also take this opportunity to say, every time I saw the title 'What a Forcan Ridge' I couldn't help but grin :lol:

This was a grand day out by all accounts

Light ale :crazy: Not sure this is the walk for your sort :lol: Looking forward to reading the report if you do follow in our footsteps, it was indeed a cracker!
