BaarbGrand  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 9, 2004


Did a clockwise circuit of the horseshoe out of Ambleside. Pretty cloudy and windy on the way up but led to some great scenes when a gap in the near clouds would appear and through it you could see what looked like massive snowy mountain ranges behind. While those were clouds too for a minute you could imagine you were in the Himalaya.

rggThe final  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 26, 2012


... at least that's what getting up to Faifield felt like. It was the penultimate day of my trip to the Lake District, but tomorrow there would be no more hiking, as I had to catch a plane.

I had come from Helvellyn, Nethermost Pike and Dollywagon Pike and spent a few leasurely hours at the tarn, preparing a nice warm lunch and having a cuppa to finish off the last of my fuel.

After that, I went up Fairfield and followed the ridge over Hart Crag, Dove Crag and beyond, all the way to lake Windermere.

By the way, I had a really excellent meal at The Log House in Ambleside.

Part of a grand round that started with early start on Pinnacle Ridge, up St Sunday, over to Farfield, down to Grisedale Tarn (where a lovely Lady was taking an early morning dip - after the coldest May on record!) and finally to Helvellyn and down Striding Edge.
