Water water everywhere !

So the weather was going to be bad, but how bad ? The BBC normally "overcook" how serious the weather is going to be. On that premise I grabbed Dad and headed for the lakes .

Boy did they get the weather right! Heavy persistent rain, gale force winds flooded rivers and car parks...... you see where i am going with this.

We decided to press on, shorten the route and bag 2 Wainwrights (Angle Tarn Pikes and Brock Crags). It was a true battle against the elements and we ended up being soaked to the skin despite all the waterproof gear.

Strangely we quite enjoyed the walk but if I had known it was going to be sooooo bad I would have stayed at home ! Ah well you live and learn :D


  1. never mentioned what Wainwrights you bagged or where you parked!

    I reckon, after less then 5 minutes thinking, that's Angle Tarn (not many tarns have islands ;-))

  2. haha! Well spotted. I have tweaked the post a bit ;)
