Xmas 2019 Walk from NT Aira Force CP. Visiting both the Wainwright and HUMP summits. Climbed up via the waterfalls and returned via the terrace path - lovely and quiet when reaching the open fell side. Great views down Ullswater as the sun was setting.Jephcote8325/12/2019

Mini-round of the 4 Gowbarrow summits from the main Aira Force car parks. Bit of an odd one - this, the highest point on the hill, is only a short distance from the very popular and clearly separated Wainwright and trig summit 100m away - standing onthis one you deal feel all the daytrippers by the trig staring across at you and wondering what you're doing at the wrong summit. Little do they know...!wheresthepath30/09/2019
