Joe on Cunswick Scar

Joe battles the terrain of Cunswick Scar. Looking back south to Scout Scar.

Yesterday, Saturday June 24th, had become literally the only day in June when I could possibly have fitted in a walk, due to a combination of trips away from home and other work commitments. So it was happening virtually whatever the weather, and as Joe would otherwise have been left at home on his own and I fancied some company, I persuaded him to come along. The combination of these factors meant it was a good idea to get in something straightforward and logistically easy: the result was walk 130, up on Scout Scar above Kendal, the first chapter described in The Outlying Fells. An easy ramble up on the dry limestone cliffs, simple to get to and enjoyable despite the drizzle. Read all about it and see more pictures on the walk 130 page.

The two summits in the Scout Scar chapter take my total up to 105 summits in the second round of 330 Wainwrights: thus I have 225 to go. With a week’s holiday coming up in the Lakes at the end of July, there won’t be any more walks for a month but hopefully then at least four in a week. Hopefully the annual June drudge weather will have shifted by then…
