The weather this week has been better than forecast and the schools have been able to enjoy the benefit.
One of the schools, from Sheffield, visits us every other year & we had an excellent days' climbing at Headend on Tuesday, it was warm & sunny with spectacular views into the North Lakes and across the Solway. There was quite a long change over between the two afternoon groups which left me on my own up there for three quarters of an hour, I fell asleep in the sun, burnt my face & woke myself up snoring!
Easedale Tarn, Blea Rigg & Silver How
On my own
Weather: cool, dry & sunny, light winds
About 7 miles
I broadly followed one of Andrew Leaney's routes starting & finishing in Grassmere.I probably walked a bit further as I extended the section between Blea Rigg & Silver How by navigating between a selection of the many small tarns & numerous contour features that characterise the area. Once again it was good to just keep that little bit off the beaten track- I could on occasion see the masses but to all intents & purposes I was able to walk in solitude for the bulk of the day (not that I am anti-social!)
