The Great Slab, Bowfell

The Great Slab of Flat Crags, on Bowfell. Langdale Pikes behind.

The weekend just gone has seen me do two walks and spend the night at Keswick inbetween. Five fells bagged, from the relatively small Catbells to the giant Bowfell, at 2960 feet the sixth-highest mountain in England (pictured). The weather was good on the first day, not so good on the second, but there’s plenty to read about as always: see the walk 33 and walk 34 pages, as well as the individual fell pages.

As of today, therefore, I have done 106 of the 214 Wainwrights and have 108 to go – thus, whichever fell I do next will be the halfway point. I have walked a total of 318.32 miles and ascended approximately 96,394 feet. My next walk is planned for Saturday April 2nd, weather permitting I will hit halfway on that date: and 100,000 feet climbed soon afterwards.
