Great Gable with Pete and Bella

Buttermere and Crummock Water, a classic view from the path to Great Gable.

Pete and Bella were guiding on Great Gable recently and here are some pictures of our adventure. The weather was perfect to start but soon turned cold and windy with cloud well down over the high fells though there were moments when the sun burst through the swirling mist and if you were quick there were opportunities for some dramatic photos.

View towards the Drumhouse with Fleetwith Pike on the left and Dale Head beyond. 

Path in Stone Cove leading to Beck Head.

Windy Gap and Stone Cove

 Beck Head Tarn with Kirk Fell beyond.

Guided Walks Programme for June 2018

A group of jolly ladies and a dog pose in the May sunshine below Eagle Crag on the way up Greenup Gill heading for Grasmere. 

Pete's Programme of Guided Walks for June 2018.

Pete thought it a good idea to offer a walk up Helvellyn the "adventure way" on Monday so if you'd like to come on the walk just give Pete a ring or an e-mail or text him. Price remains at a very modest £25 per person for the day. The walks starts in Keswick at the bus station so you'll  need to bring your fare or your pass. I need at least three walkers to make the walk viable so if you've got a mate with you all the better...

Monday 25 June.

Helvellyn, The Adventure Route.

Ascent from Dunmail Raise via Grisedale Tarn, Cock Cove, Hard Tarn and the East ridge of Nethermost Pike. Descent to the Kings Head at Thirlspot where there's a bus stop and a drink.

555 Bus departs Keswick bus station to Dunmail Raise at 0930.
