The final walk of our Borrowdale weekend was a little Sunday morning stroll from the hostel up Grange Fell (we only did Brund Fell - do you need Kings How to count the Wainwright?).

Lovely shots again BH, can't help with the question about whether or not you can count the Wainwright but I know folks on here will have all the info you need :thumbup:

Great photos, looks like a stunning day with all the qualities that make the Lake District such a special place.

As Beery Hiker will know, I get confused even as to what is a Marilyn and what is a Munro (I thought they were one person).

But, I suspect that Brund How summit alone, without King's How, will count as bagging the Wainwright.

My reasoning is that there are several multi-summit fells given a single chapter by Wainwright, and -
- would you be deemed to have not bagged the Wainwright Scafell Pike if you did not visit Broad and ill Crags?... I think not
- ditto Helvellyn and Helvellyn Lower Man
- ditto the two summits of Mellbreak and the two summits of Yewbarrow... and so on.
