Around Sty Head - 21 August

From Brackenclose over Kirk Fell, Great Gable, Green Gable, Brandreth, Grey Knotts, Brandreth, Base Brown, Glaramara, Allan Crags, Great End, Broad Crag, Lingmell and back to Brackenclose.

A day out to recce most of the "FRCC Tops" which were purchased after the First World War as a permanent memorial to those who would not be coming back to enjoy them. The tops listed above plus Seathwaite Fell were donated to the National Trust in 1924.

Although I am familiar with all these fells and most of the route in between them there are a few bits I wanted to have another look at before putting together a route around all twelve.

The first part of the day was a cool, clear morning and ideal for my recce but from Glaramara onwards the route was above the cloud base until the final summit, Lingmell. Glaramara apart it all went well and was a fabulous day out.
