Kevin Foster bagged on November 14th, 2019 [from/via/route] Patterdale [with] Henry. [weather] Grey skies (visibility good below 2000 feet) freezing hill mist above 2000 feet. - Beyond the col a slanting track to the left climbs gradually to the minor top of Gavel Pike. I was surprised how much snow & ice there was so early in the winter season making it a tough climb. The large summit cairn was covered in snow & frost sculpted by the biting northerly wind. Not lingering I left the summit by the well cairned main path. At the massive cairn on the edge of crags overlooking Grisedale below the views opened up again. From here on the walk back to Patterdale was a sheer delight with wonderful views of Ullswater in the distance. A lovely walk.

Once completed we retraced back to Birks & continued with route C211 back to the car park. Arrived back at 1500hrs. Thoroughly enjoyable day.

Return to col between them & then via the path that skirts to the north west side of Birks & hence back to Patterdale. [with] My wife Faith, friends - Mike & Linda Robinson and John & Jo Cocker, and son Peter and his fiancée Alex. [weather] Fine. No rain, sporadic sunshine & moderate winds. Visibility poor at summit, a pity! - This is our final Wainwright & friends & family had gathered to celebrate the occasion. We had to wait three days to do it as high winds & fog made the previous two days too risky to ask others to come with us. We celebrated with glasses of Prosecco carried up in little bottles so we each shared the load of bringing the booze up! A good feeling having bagged the lot only marred by poor visibility on top of no 214! From now on we can climb those fells that we like rather than the next on the list. On to the next challenge, we are starting to look for long distance trails starting with an easy taster, White to Dark in our own Peak District, 25 miles over 3 days, with a view to something more challenging next year.
