From Bowness Knott cp. Grisly path up firebreak. Visited boulder summit as well as cairn. Very sad to see all the dead & dying larches from Phytophthorum Ramorum fungus.ngthack10/01/2016
With Jenx on her penultimate Birkett. From CP at Bowness Knott with Beth and Chris. Tracks most of way to woods, then a poor path up the firebreak line, churned up by cattle. Water wash and mud through rain made it worse, hoping the final hill is better than this one!nordicstar07/11/2015
