Well it’s been a long time since I did this one! The last time I did this route was in 2003 but of course the fells have been visited since then using different routes. It was longer and tougher than I remember but then again perhaps it is because I have 18 more years in my legs. This is a fantastic round and one that I can highly recommend and the conditions were absolutely perfect for it with fine Autumn weather. As you will see the conditions all around weren’t necessarily so good so I struck lucky today.
For anyone interested, there are two Striding Edge Lake District calendars this year, an A3 one and an A5 desktop version. They are available here and there is a multi-buy discount available for both sizes.
