Solo Wainwrights

I am pleased to say that my visit to meet Tanya Oliver and find out more about the Fix the Fells team, kick-started my Wainwright bagging again after a fall last year put things on hold.

It was a pleasure to complete my first short solo hike of what my book calls the Greenburn round This route starts at Grasmere and includes Helm Crag, Gibson Knott, Calf Crag and Steel Fell in the Central Fells. Armed with my trekking poles (still an experiment), a fulsome packed lunch from Grasmere YH and my new Harvey mountain map of the Lakes, there was nothing for it but to strike out on a trip which I hope will be the first of many. As I continued along the route, I could feel my confidence and enjoyment in the fells returning, and that was a feeling worth sharing.

  1. Ah, isn’t this piece-of-rock we inhabit beautiful/ Especially when we see and read reports such as this. Thank you Rose for sharing another great post with us. Looking forward to more of the same.
