How many GPS Waypoints for Wainwright's Coast to Coast walk
Q. How many waypoints are there on your Coast-to-Coast walk, are there options if I do not want to follow routes such as High options etc, are these easily downloadable into my Garmin GPS 60, could you send me a snippet so that I can assess?

A. There are 192 GPS Waypoints covering the Coast to Coast walk as originally devised by Alfred Wainwright.
These GPS Waypoints take the most direct and least strenuous route and do not include the high level alternatives i.e.
- follow the valley bottom up Ennerdale and not the High Stile Ridge (Red Pike, High Stile & High Crag) and
- follow Tongue Gill up to Grisedale Tarn and then down the bottom of Grisedale itself to Patterdale rather going over either Helvellyn & Striding Edge (to the north) or St Sunday Crag to the south.

Hope this helps
