Caw – 23 September

The day after the Rucksack Club fell race involves collecting the controls which means a gentle run out over part of the route to controls you found the day before or ones you didn’t, if you are still looking for a challenge. Pauline and I went out to collect the controls around Caw and visited the summit en route. Not the highest hill above the valley but one with some of the best views. Caw is also the final check point on the long Duddon Valley fell race route and has just enough ascent to provide a “sting in the tail” as well as a very fast descent to the finish of the race below.

The early morning light wasn’t as spectacular as Saturday but  the developing clouds added some interest.
