Funny how you can plan the night before and everything is packed and ready to go…then in the morning its all changed and your repacking your bag , what was going to be Grey Knotts, Brandreth, Green Gable and Great Gable turned into just the one activation Hopegill Head.
Still the legs got a blasting climbing Whin Ben and Whiteside and then over Gasgale craggs for the climb to Hopegill…did have the intentions of going up to Crag Hill (Eel Crag)…but the rain at the summit changed my route and put me in home mode. So on Coledale hause I descended via Gasgale Gill for the lonely walk back to the car…this I have done a good few times now and tell myself each time I will never do it again. I find it to be a walk with many hazards no phone signal and chances of a radio contact very very slim and not many people walk it.
Still very enjoyable and good to be out for fresh air and exercise
