I obviously didn’t get enough of the rough stuff yesterday on Great Gable and I was irresistibly drawn back to Wasdale and had a walk across Yewbarrow. I couldn’t help thinking back to Friday’s walk to High Pike – on the trig. column there is an inscription which says ‘Caldbeck fells are worth all England else’. Whoever thought of that one surely can’t have been to Wasdale…
