From Nannycatch Road end car park. Wet, not the best end to year, but saw the chap from Cleator Moor who ran a marathon every day through 2022 - a big turn out and rightly so - more impressive than any bagging our bagging feats in a year?davechaffey31/12/2022

Up from South Wales to finish off my English Marilyns. I wasn't in our original plan to walk today but having made good time and seeing the weather forecast for heavy raid on Wednesday we decided to tackle this one. Parked in the Longlands Lake car park, made an error of heading east initially but corrected ourselves and headed north up the east side of the river bank, then east along thee tracks, through farmyard and over road to pick up C2C route all the way to the top. The high point isn't the first cairn so needed to go on further to the top.Father Ted24/10/2021
