Robinson to Dale Head

Elevenses on High Snockrigg

The snow has almost disappeared from the Lakeland Fells now, it's the last day of April and only patches remain on the higher tops. Here we take a break on High Snockrigg above Buttermere Moss. The normally boggy morass proved little obstacle today as there's not been a great deal of rain in the district recently and we climbed dry-shod to the top of Robinson 737m for lunch. That's Paul Ross in red who used to be a KR leader himself before leaving for the US where he spent the best part of fifteen years climbing in Colorado and neighbouring states...he's back! Little Bess one of his two Jack Russells is looking on and taking it all in her stride despite this being only her second outing on the Lakeland Fells. It was a fine sunny day today and a great day out; we look forward to many more of them this season and hope you'll find time to join us on a walk yourselves.
