200 fells reached and ‘The Southern Fells’ completed

August 24, 2012

Yew Crags and Brotherilkeld

Yew Crags (part of Hard Knott) and the farm buildings of Brotherilkeld.

Finished off the four-day break in Eskdale with two further walks: walk 63 took me round Harter Fell and Hard Knott and walk 64 up the valley pictured here – Upper Eskdale – over Crinkle Crags and eventually down to Langdale. Two long walks, to add to the long walk I did on Monday…. I’m tired!

But, in the last month – and despite some lousy weather – I have bagged a total of 22 Wainwrights and the back of the project is well and truly broken, the end is in sight. Cold Pike, reached on the second of these two walks, achieves the distinction of being fell number 200: and I have also completed a third Wainwright volume, this being The Southern Fells (volume 4).

As of today then, I have bagged 201 of the 214 Wainwright fells, thus have 13 to go. I have walked a total of 654.01 miles and ascended approximately 191,792 feet.
