Walk 85 completed

Buck Barrow summit rocks

Summit rocks of Buck Barrow, Duddon Estuary in the background.

In mostly warm sunshine yesterday (7th August) I hauled myself and an unnecessarily excessive amount of luggage around 15.1 miles of terrain in the south-west of the District, thus completing walk 85. The five summits bagged came from two of the chapters in Wainwright’s Outlying Fells, namely Stainton Pike and Whit Fell. A good walk with fine views, but a long one…

I seem to have been doing the OFs for ages now but am still not yet half-way through the 116 summits in that book, having by now done 53 of them for a total of 267 of the 330 Wainwrights. I do plan a (short and easy!) walk next week, so keep checking back for more updates…
