  • Walk up Old Man of Coniston

    Thought I'd share a few photos of my latest mountain walk which was The Old man of Coniston in the lake district. A 5 hour 8 mile walk which consisted of the summits of the Old man @ 803m & Dow Crag @778m plus 3 lesser crags in a circular route. Weather was sunny intervals with a breezy 25mph wind on the summits which made it neccessary to break out the wooly hats in the cold breeze.

    A pint in the Sun Inn @ the bottom of the mountain followed by eating fish & chips and watching anglers sea fishing into the Estuary just outside Ulverston rounded off a good day out. This walk was probably the easiest walk completed this year & the last mountain walk by my group of workmates until the Spring.
