Successful 10th anniversary challenge
I can report on the successful completion of the 4 English 3000 footers last weekend on the tenth anniversary of the first annual leaders' weekend in 1997. The Saturday walk was up Skiddaw in force 12 (confirmed by anemometer reading!) winds. On Sunday we walked up Scafell Pike via Piers Gill and Scafell via Fox's Tarn. On Monday we climbed Helvellyn via Striding Edge and returned via Swirral Edge and Lanty's Tarn. On Tuesday, we split into two groups, one climbing Dow Crag and Coniston Old Man and the other christening the newly repaired boat "Second Wind". More photos can be seen here.
