Lakes Winter Meet 2 – 4 February 2018

Friday’s forecast was good so headed to Tilberthwaite to climb Wetherlam, Swirl How,




Langdale Pikes

The Carrs then back via Little Langdale – perfect weather but cold

Saturday was not so good – the cloud was down and it was drizzling. Lynn, Neil and I set off from Threlkeld towards Skiddaw House, crossed the river about 1k before Skiddaw House and followed the track to Latrigg then back to Threlkeld for a beer in the Sally.


Sunday was a perfect day especially in the western part of the Lakes. 6 of us left Buttermere village and headed north alongthe side of Crummock Water, before turning south up Scale Beck past Scale Force and onto Red Pike.


The ridge to Red Pike

We then traversed the ridge in a south easterly direction, climbing High Stile and High Crag before descending to Scarth Gap Pass,
