Mr. Wainwright might have been a bit wide of the mark on occasion, though I'm growing to respect his aim. Today he was spot on. The walk along the Stonethwaite Beck out of Borrowdale was 'a walk in heaven'.
A gentle climb up the valley to Stonethwaite Fell then steeply onward to reach Lining Crag (500m) and Greenup Edge (630m). Downward onto and across the squishy bogs that give birth to Wythburn Tarn then choice time again! Big-Boy route over Calf Crag and then a ridge walk down to Helm Crag or a low level alternative! Sunny still day! Not in a hurry! Guess which?
So here's the pics from a glorious day that gave me sunburn in Cumbria in April! Yes really!
