I met up with Martin and Claire last Saturday for a DA of Rossett pike then onto Esk pike and Bowfell it was a bit of a wet day to say the least and this Saturday I got the bus to Coniston for a walk up Dow crag via the South rake then onto COM , Brim fell , Swirl hows ,Great carrs and back down Wet side edge then down Little Langdale to Skelwith , it started raining very heavy by the time I got to Slaters bridge so I was quite happy that I did all the tops in the dry

a great selection of photos Andy, we still have the Coniston Fells to do yet and these pics will help us plan our future routes.We are thinking to do the reverse of your Bow Fell, Esk Pike Rossett Pike route. thanks for the references
The fleeting hour of life of those who love the hills is quickly spent, but the hills are eternal, always there will be the lonely ridge, the dancing beck, the silent forest, the exhilaration of the summits. These are for the seeking and those who seek and find while there is still time will be blessed both in mind & body. AW- Book 7 The Western Fells.
Hi Jennifer and Stephen Thanks for you comments If you do Bowfell first give the climbers traverse a go it's a great route always quiet .
Hi Jenny I remember doing P de B with Martin in the mist and rain we nearly walked past it but if the weather is OK you wont have any problems The weather has certainly changed for the worse had some cold wet walks recently ;D
Two brilliant walks from you.....shame the weather was dull with GC & Claire, but the photos are still fab! Thats a walkies Im keen to do ) plus I want to look for packwomans grave!
Enjoyed your Dow Crag walk too, lovely and atmospheric with the clouds and the day seemed to have a nice peaceful feel to it through those pics. Cant believe how far you walked in such a short time!!! Super fit or what!
Hi Lesley ,Derek and Martin A couple of nice walks thanks it's a pity this weather isn't getting any better we could do with some sunshine again Derek a good Wainwright classic with Martin posing on the Slab ;D
