Wasdale – 05 October

A couple of 2014 “Joss” contenders provided the excuse to go Wasdale for a run from Wasdale Head to Sty Head for the fabulous route to Greendale Bridge. The conditions were always interesting with low clouds coming and going. We found the routes and lines we were looking for and had a thoroughly good day out. Here is hoping both Martin and Michael have as good day in 2014 on their respective attempts.

  1. Like you ever need an excuse to go to Wasdale! Fabulous photos. Good luck to your pals with their 2013 JNC attempts. I'm going to have to wait 'til I'm 55 and have a bit more time in the bank I think

    1. Thanks. It is a good bit easier in 15 hours.

  2. Great pictures, as ever Ian. Love the way you captured Wastwater through that hole in the clouds....very atmospheric.

    1. Thank you. That was a lucky shot but you have to be there with a camera to be that lucky :)
