With Hamish.........Pinnacle ridge
Part of a route that included Helvellyn & Fairfield
Part of a grand round that started with early start on Pinnacle Ridge, up St Sunday Crag, 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.
Great scramble - first sighting of the smear teachnique!
Parched - didn't take enough water. Learnt my lesson and bought a Platypus next day.
Climbed in excellent weather from Patterdale. Went onto Fairfield.
of the number of times up Pinnacle Ridge; love it
in all conditions. Pinnacle ridge is worth the walk in!
