Eskdale – 13 June

A few more Birketts and a Wainwright for our Third Round from Doctor Bridge in Eskdale and it is strange how quickly time passes. It is more than 10 years since we visited Green Crag and my recollection was of a small hill a long way from anywhere and well guarded by bogs. I think the bogs must lie between Green Crag and Harter Fell because we saw few today coming from Eskdale and the relative isolation probably reflects the level of weariness on the day.

Starting at the delightful Doctor Bridge, Kepple Crag, Great Whinscale, The Pike and Green Crag all follow on from each very quickly. The three Birketts beyond were tempting but tomorrow will be longer and have much more climbing so we save our legs for Sunday and head for Wasdale.
