Michael Nolan climbed on June 11th, 2019 [from/via/route] Haweswater ....corpse road [weather] overcast but fine
Kevin Foster bagged on April 19th, 2019 [from/via/route] Swindale Lane. [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny with very little breeze making it quite hot for walking. - I chose this walk to start off my Lakes campaign thinking it was a fairly remote part of the Lakes and it might not be too overcrowded over the Easter weekend...wrong! When I got there the car park was already full. Although I saw many people out and about strangely I had almost every summit top to myself. The exception being Selside Pike where I met a couple with two dogs, one of which tried to eat my sandwich and the other had a go at Henry for getting too close or something. Luckily they made their apologies and quickly moved on.
