Sunny all day - Underestimated how exhausting the walk. Age and reduced fitness taking its toll. We watched Fell runner climbed Lords Rake in 3 minutes ! Met up with Kiwi shepherds and continued walking and spent the following day with them. Ran out of steam and time to add on Lingmell. Very late for booked meal at Wasdale, but they kindly served us.

Andy Buxton hiked during August, 1968 [from/via/route] Corridor Route to Scafell Pike thenLOrd's Rake and West Wall Traverse. Descent vis Lord's Rake [with] Dad [weather] Misty - Lord's Rake a bloody loose thrutch. Also with Ian Wright in June 1980 plus other times

[with] Sue [weather] Wonderful walking weather - fair, sunshine and cloud with a cooling breeze. Poor visibility on Sca Fell summit. - Very boggy ground on way up and on way down. Saw memorial to Polish pilots who crashed in 1941 - some wreckage still present at site.

Phillip Bulley climbed on September 8th, 2019 [from/via/route] From Backenclose to lords rake. [with] Ruby. [weather] Sunny and warm.

Bay Wan bagged on August 25th, 2019 [from/via/route] Slight Side to Scafell loop (avoided Scafell Pike like the plague because a) it was August Bank holiday weekend and b) I heard it was all bouldery so not really my bag) [with] Cocoa dog - 8 yrs old [weather] Sunny summers day. 25 degrees. Lovely with a breeze. Cooking without. - Path disappeared after about an hour on the way up to Slight Side at Whinscales and it's pretty boggy in most if the way, however, treading a lesser used path has its advantages being I saw no one until I neared Scafell! Didn't enjoy the scree descent down from Scafell and the boggy return, although the path was better here.
