Well this is officially the start of my Wainwright journey. I'm a keen hiker but unfortunately, a lot of what I've already done isn't on the list!
We took our time with this one, my friend is a photographer so she stops every 5 seconds to take pictures, hence the 4.5 hrs.
It was a tough climb at the start after the memorial stone but I soon got my pace. That section on the way down was killer! and i forgot my poles so my knee caps took a pounding.
Definitely would like do do this solo to see what my accent time time would be.
