2014 Walking Season

A snow covered Catstycam seen from the track from Glenridding

Ullswater and the view east from Catstycam summit

The photos above were taken last month when Pete, Bella and Alan, one of our mates, climbed Catstycam (890m) from Glenridding. It was one of the few perfect walking days we've had recently and we certainly needed our crampons on this outing.

The snow has all but gone now from the tops of the high fells and the weather seems to have turned the corner into early spring...it's high time to publish my programme for the season's guided walks, so here goes...
Remember you need to ring, text or e-mail to book each walk, the cost remains at £20 each this season and most walks start at 0900hrs. Pete will advise you of the details when you book.

Coniston Overnighter 2-3 July

One of the features of Pete and Lyn's programme in recent seasons has been the "Overnighter". This July we plan to stay for 2 nights in Coniston and a programme of walks convenient from that centre will be arranged, ring Pete for details on 017687 71302.
