Fifty walks and 150 fells reached: three walks last weekend

Gategill Fell top

Looking along to Gategill Fell top, from Blencathra summit

Having been primed to go on a walk for most of the last fortnight, since Christmas, and been frustrated by the weather one way or another, it was ironic that on a weekend booked months ago, as we took a gamble on conditions, we had the most glorious four days, in which I managed three separate walks (one with Clare and Joe):

  • Walk 48; took me round the valley of Glencoyne, near Ullswater
  • Walk 49; up Blencathra (pictured here)
  • Walk 50; through Skiddaw Forest, the longest of the three.

So I have reached 50 walks! It has taken me that many to bag 154 of the 214 Wainwright fells – thus I have 60 to go. I have walked a total of 497.31 miles (another milestone awaits, then) and ascended a total of 145,029 feet. Plenty for you to catch up with, on the various walk and fell pages: enjoy! Next walk due some time in early February.
