Tuesday 14th December 2004
Start point: Thornthwaite (NY
Kirk Fell on Lorton
(245) - Spout Gill -
Brown How on Whinlatter
(Thornthwaite) (250) -
Weather: Dull, overcast - gale force winds
and driving rain.
Today's walk started with a steep ascent up to
Barf from Thornthwaite - I think I found out why it is called Barf going
up there! The weather was absolutely atrocious - gale force winds and
driving rain, especially on the exposed sections from Lord's Seat to
Broom Fell and across Whinlatter. The forest sections came as a welcome
relief from the constant battering today.
