Lake District Borrowdale: Base Brown

Date walked: 03/08/2020

Time taken: 2.5 hours

Distance: 6.25km

Ascent: 565m

This a relatively short and easy, but very pleasant, ascent with a real mountain feel about it.

It is possible to shorten the route by taking a more direct route, although a group ahead of me took this option and arrived at the top quite a while after I did. In the wet it's probably more advisable to follow the route that I did up Gillercomb alongside Sour Milk Gill until it meets the path leading up to summit from the obvious col. I returned the same way.

On a personal note, the ascent meant that I had completed all of Wainwright's Western Fells.
