On Great End (we think!), before some random stumbling in the cloud ensued to get back to Esk Hause. Looking at the GPS track, we actually went full circle, what bunch of muppets :oops: :oops: but well done AJ in completing the round! :clap: :clap:

Yep, this was a great fun day. Thanks for joining us for a border-run and for showing off the pics of my "Lego Colours" combo. :)

Good to be back home safe. Now I need to plan a conquest of some more Scottish hills this Summer. :D

Great photo's there! I only got my camera out once, as I was constantly trying to catch up with you guys.

Glad you enjoyed your little wader in our small English hills.
I'm presuming you took the heights gained and distances off your GPS....? I was close on the height, but sold us 3km short in my walk report.
I think that is mainly due to Seathwaite being off the top of the map and me having to guess how far it was.

I figure they split the Seathwaite Corridor over maps OL4 and OL6 to sell more copies. ;)

Well done to AJ on completing, and being able to enjoy the old clichés about a great end to the round.

Nice photos, JF.

@Ibex - cheers, sorry about the pace, I blame AJ, he was desperate to get that last one in the bag :wink:
Yes, I got the distance and ascent from the GPS track.

@simon-b thanks, they're the best of a bad bunch, I usually go with the plan of snapping as much as I can in the hope that I capture something worthwhile.
