Waking up on the shores of Crummock we made the short distance to Buttermere to do the Buttermere Edge. popped into a camp site for a poo and a sudocrem rub we were about to start. However by now time was passing by Bec thought she may have monthly issues so after a short conversation and because of where we were parked we decided to do the single we missed off the Newlands, Robinson. Parking at Newlands Hause. The 1st incline only taking 15 mins but then we hit the bog. Soon we made it too the final steep incline. It’s been a while since we have done multi day walks so this final bit felt like it was going to kill me. But as is the way on mountains if you keep moving forward just 1 foot after another you will soon make it to the top. Cracking windshelter on the summit. Got back to the car quickly not really caring about our wet feet. Got supplies from Keswick and spent all afternoon on Crummock water on my new birthday boat. Seeing fighter jets too. Drove to cold fell road to sleepScotty 2 Hotty18/06/2019

Newlands Horseshoe trail runmaaaaaaaatty11/07/2018
Part of The Newland Watershed walk by Stuart Marshall. This was Wainwright no.5. The half way point in terms of summits. I really struggled getting up this one because of the relentless sun, lack of water (I had some but needed to ration), and cramps in both legs. Took an electrolyte tablet, a pain killer, and carried on towards Hindscarth.NorthernWayfarer08/07/2018
