With DW from Greendale. First walk of this miserable year so far. Meant to be cloudy and rainy, but T-shirt weather throughout. The steps on the last 100m are very worn and gravelly/slippy. Buckbarrow on descent and a mile long slog on the road to the car.nukeboy103/05/2024
2nd hill of 12 on a 29.3km circuit from Greendale cottages. After Middle Fell, I headed North then Nw to climb very steeply up a small track that has cut footsteps into the ground, slow-going but steady eventually arriving on barren plateaux. Fortunately i had grid ref to find high point. Also visited Trig pillar and larger Cairn, then headed North to High Pikehow...Dazingdale17/03/2024
