From Watendlath for a round of Middle Crag, Armboth Fell, Shivery Knott, Watendlath Fell, Standing Crag and Coldbarrow Fell.rhalstead26/05/2019
A great run out on the fells. Started from Keswick in glorious sunshine and this remained throughout. Dry underfoot pretty much and not as bad as I expected. The peaks were also pretty busy, people had clearly decided to try and bag these peaks in drier conditions. Great fun. Walla crag, Bleaberry Fell, High stile, High tove, armboth fell, middle crag, and castle cragJim Baz17/04/2019

Solo run circuit of 8 Birketts in afternoon - a 3 hour 'escape to the hills' run having spent morning in Ambleside YH writing an essay on classroom management as doing my PGCE year. From Thirlmere I climbed out of the gloom to Fisher Crag to a cloud inversion -very special. Rough and swampy but so good to be out with fun navigating the best line between the tops.Chris Pearson05/01/2002
