Climbed Fleetwith Pike up the Via Ferrata Classic Route with Elizabeth & James for my 53rd birthday present to myself. Took the bus from the Honister Visitor Centre to the start of the climb then followed the Via Ferrata, waterfall scramble and final scramble up to the summit. Took about 2 hours and was well worth the effort. Couldn't see Great Gable & Scafell Pike due to the low cloud but was assured we were looking in the right direction which brought back happy memories from 2015. Descent over some boggy ground then the track back to the Visitor Centre. Day was overcast with low cloud although the heavy showers had blown over by the time we started the climb. A great day although Elizabeth & James may disagree!TractorBoy22/10/2017
