First Birkett RouteBremnerB13/04/2002
Solo run circuit of 8 Birketts in afternoon - a 3 hour 'escape to the hills' run having spent morning in Ambleside YH writing an essay on classroom management as doing my PGCE year. From Thirlmere I climbed out of the gloom to Fisher Crag to a cloud inversion -very special. Rough and swampy but so good to be out with fun navigating the best line between the tops.Chris Pearson05/01/2002
