Solo Central Fells top baggingDinoF04/07/2020
Caution:Danger of drowning I had my poles with me which were invaluable for spreading my weight and prodding the bogs but despite that I stood on some firm grass which broke off an deposited me waist deep in 3 degree water.... Then a bit later my left pole went in vertically so fast and deep, above the grip, I let go of it to avoid following it in. I had to use my second pole as a fishing rod to hook the wrist loop on the first pole. i won't be going there again!David Bell05/02/2020

From Armboth we made our way back to High Tove this time the correct and much shorter way before turning north to head up high seat. This was the worst of the bog and peat. Really hard going and gutted I missed Bec falling in. we ploughed on before the climb to the summit. Best summit of the day by far as normally the case when they have a Trig column. Great views towards Skiddaw and Blencathra. And one of the few occasions you have 3 lakes in view. Derwent Bassenthwaite and Thirlmere. Stopped had a Turkish delight and a fellow walker took our picture before we headed off to Bleaberry.Scotty 2 Hotty21/07/2019

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.

Circular walk from Armboth Carpark, Thirlmere. Had to drive around as the Dam wall/road was closed for works. Armboth onto High Tove. High Seat then Bleaberry Fell. Decided against dropping down to Walla Crag as it would have put too much onto an already long day [left home at 0500 and started walking at 1100!]. I wouldn`t walk this route in the summer as it would be far too boggy. Fortunately I was able to walk over most of the bog as it was frozen. Some patches were defrosting as I found out the hard way! Finished in the dark, however the permissible path along the west shore of Thirlmere was spot on!Butty12/01/2018
