Richard Marchant walked up Brandreth on November 3rd, 1989 [from/via/route] Parked the car at Honiston Hause and took the path to Fleetwith around Brandreth and straight to Great Gable, the return route took me from here on to Green Gable-Brandreth and finally Grey Knotts and back to Honiston Hause. Spent most of the day in the clouds but still a awesome experience and great to be in the Lakes. [with] On my own [weather] A cold damp day with snow and ice on the tops and the cloud level down to the 600m mark - A 3 day trip to the Lakes on my own from Plymouth. I stopped in Windermere at a Navy Pal's Andrew (Ali) Mcgraw Mum and Dad's house.
