Up the Sourmilk Gill path, in pouring rain, which soon turned into a blizzard, with minimal visibility. Then onwards over High Stile, High Crag and back to the YHA to defrost and dry out...! Saw a Red Squirrel in a tree by the lake.
Penelope and I hiked up Sourmilk Gill, High Stile and Red Pike from the parking lot close to Lake Buttermere on December 28th, 2005. The hike was wonderful, the crags visible in the distance so inviting for us to come back to rock climb a little, we had the most wonderful time in the Lake District. We WILL return.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
