Gillercomb Round

eathwaite – Hanging Stone – Base Brown (505) – Blackmoor Pols – Green Gable – Gillercomb Head – Brandreth Grey Knotts – Borrowdale Yews – Seathwaite

Distance: 5 miles     Total Ascent: 780 metres     Time Taken: 3 hours 30 minutes

Weather: Overcast, the tops in cloud. 8°C

The weather returned to being dull and damp after the rather more glamorous conditions of last Thursday. The tops were in cloud until the very end when the sun made a brief appearance. I can hardly believe it is 3 years since I last visited Base Brown, how time flies! I think conditions were similar last time I was there as well; I must visit it in the sunshine one day.
