I am back from a truly excellent 5 day backpack trip in the Lake District. Great wild camps, excellent weather and the fine company of Terry Abraham and Chris Townsend. We had Dan Richards – (Mark Richard’s son he of the Fellranger Guides fame) and Paul one of Terry’s mates join us on High Raise and Great Gable respectfully for a night’s camp.
I spent Sunday and Monday on my own starting at Threlkeld, walking over Clough Head, the Dodds, Helvelyn and camping at Nethermost Pike, before dropping down the next day to Thirlmire Res and up onto the opposite ridge, meeting up with Terry and Chris on Bleaberry Fell in the evening.
The three of us walked for the next 3 days, with Terry and Chris filming for a new DVD out in the autumn.
More soon, but here is a flavour of the trip in the follow photographs.
