Back on the fells

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 fell bagging again after a fall last year put things on hold.

It was a pleasure to complete this short hike of what my book calls the Greenburn round.ย 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 YHA and my new Harvey mountain map of the Lakes, there was nothing for it but to strike out again. As I continued along the route, I could feel my confidence and enjoyment in the fells returning.
