time so only the briefest of reports this time (thank goodness, do I
hear?). This was
essentially a training session for the High Street QH2QH big one (BB0617) so was pursued
at a fairly vigorous pace by Bryan, Stan and me.
Fairfield Horseshoe from Rydal Hall clockwise. 8 Wainwrights: Nab Scar, Heron
Pike, Great Rigg, Fairfield, Hart Crag, Dove Crag, High Pike, Low Pike. Cut
back across the fields (of dead sheep) and stream at the end to save a mile or
so. Distance 9 miles and 3,376 feet of climbing.
little disappointing- we had expected the cloud to break but apart from the odd
patch of blue, the day was rather greyer than merited by the bottle of sun
lotion that I bought on route (so it was my fault the sun never got out!).
Quite a chilly wind when we stopped.
approach to Fairfield
extensive, most of the lake district peaks, 8 lakes and at least 3 large tarns
and extensive examination of the High Street skyline!
