Wet Sleddale

Anyone who knows what the weather is like in the UK at the moment will know that it would be very, very hard for anyone like me to stay indoors and not walking today. OK, so, I’ve got to make up the time at work, but it was worth it.

I took the chance to do some of the lonely moors to the far east of the District, doing Wainwright’s Wasdale Horseshoe walk; not the Wasdale everyone knows but almost its total opposite, lonely and grassy. Along the way I bagged 4 summits, meaning I have now done 245 of the full list of 330 Wainwrights, thus I have 85 to go.

Read about it on the walk 80 and Wasdale Horseshoe pages, and enjoy the sunshine. If things go well and the weather pattern holds I will be doing another one of these next week, possibly in the same region, as the #106 bus could disappear at any point.
