Above are a quartet of images from Pete's walk up Helvellyn last month. There's still a good deal of snow on the Lake District fell tops in mid-February and walking conditions are good.

News for 2017

This year Pete will be guiding in the Lake District as usual, he will be taking Private Bookings rather than putting on a programme of walks, though there will be a short season of programmed walks the week 18-25 June. There will also be an "Overnighter" based in Ravenglass in the West Lakes 25-28 June, details of these are to follow soon.

If you'd like to book a walk this season Pete will plan an outing to suit your abilities, just text, e-mail or 'phone him...details above.

Pete is a qualified Mountain Leader and holds an up-to-date First Aid Cert.

New Year News for 2017

Blencathra in late December looking towards St Johns in the Vale


I thought I'd kick start the KR Blog for 2017 by posting some of the more dramatic photos of our recent winter outings in the Lakes. There have been many fine walking days this winter, lots of sunshine and even some snow, though mostly confined to the higher fell tops. The photo above was taken from the summit ridge of Blencathra just as the mist lifted and the sun lit up Tewit Tarn on Low Rigg in the distance.
