The plan

OK here’s the plan. Up to the Lakes tomorrow, wild camp in the evening. Jeff aka Trentham Walker is joining me for Tuesday and Wednesday. On Wednesday it’s Robinson, Dale Head and wild camp on Haystacks. Thursday is Pillar, Scoat Fell, Red Pike, Yewbarrow and wild camp at Burnmoor Tarn. Friday is Scafell (not Pike) Esk Hause, Langdale Pikes, wild camp at Codadale Tarn. Saturday, either the ridge to Castlerigg Fell or down to Borrowdale and finish at Braithwaite. The weather looks OK, but I’ve built in a bit of flexibility. Most of yesterday and today has been spent packing and getting supplies. Base weight is c.9kg. Food is c. 3.6kg. All up weight with fuel should be around 13kg. Not UL, but not too bad!

  1. A long list of very evocative names that, to me now sound both familar and exotic all at once. Great stuff. Have a good one!

  2. Have a great trip! See, now you can fit in mid-week trips and miss the worst of the weekend crowds. This retirement malarky sounds great – only 20 years to wait!!

    1. 😉 Thanks everyone for your good wishes. The forecast is mixed to good, and warmer than it has been recently.
