Birkett Bagging above Borrowdale – 15 August

A weekend in Borrowdale gave us the opportunity to bag the Birketts between Ullscarf and High Tove and then add King’s How to the end of the day. Morning cloud cover, the year’s cold wind with the occasional rain shower made it a distinctly autumnal day and the wet, slow-going ground did little to help. Late afternoon sunshine was very welcome and produced some dramatic light at Watendlath and in Borrowdale.
