Next Tuesday 9th March

Pete and Lyn are taking a walk out up Grisedale to the Brothers' Parting Stone on the 9th March. If  you'd like to come with us then contact us please as we will need to arrange transport as we're starting from Glenridding. Sorry we've no photos of this walk, but we intend to take some on the day. The weather forecast is still cold and fairly clear, and when Pete was up at Grisedale Tarn last week he said it was very icy, so it would be a good idea to pack crampons, ("Kahtoolas" are best) even though this is a fairly low level walk, in case the conditions are the same next week.

Yes it was supposed to say March.

Googling "Glenridding to Brothers Parting Stone" all I can get is a walk over the Edge (ugh!) and the several Helvellyn fells, descending to Grisedale tarn, Dunmail Raise. You don't intend to do that, do you? At least - this would be NO fairly low level walk :-)!

Hi Kira, this is a walk from Glenridding up the valley to the Brothers' Parting stone and then back down the other side of the valley to Glenridding. It should be a fairly easy B walk, but of course we don't know at this stage how much snow we will come across.

Phew! I'm relieved! Anyway, woolly hat and gloves and crampons will travel with me. The complete winter stuff, I'm afraid...
