Carrock Fell – 15 November 2014

We have a long “tick-list” - Wainwright High Fells (Third Round), Wainwright Outlyers (First Round), FRCC Fells (First Round), Birketts (First Round) and Marilyns (unlikely that we will complete a first round but a very worthwhile list nevertheless) and unlike previous rounds of the High Fells we are now actively trying to complete the other rounds at the same time.

Carrock Fell was on the Third Round and we planned to visit The Tongue but failed to find it in difficult conditions only to find, after we got home, that we had been there in December 2007 so we got our Birkett, just not in the way we planned. Conditions improved later in the day and we enjoyed spectacular skyscapes on our way to Keswick in the late afternoon.
