Leg 8 Tilberthwaite to New Dungeon Ghyll. Dan R & Patrick

Holme Fell gave us the only people we saw on the leg, a slightly surprised couple camping on the summit who weren’t expecting any visitors at 10.30 pm. A good route down to the road then the bit we’d both been dreading: bashing through head high bracken to hit the path leading round to Black Fell, but we lucked out with a good line. Fabulous being on the top with a pretty full moon above us. Then some careful route finding back down to the road and over towards the last hill on the leg. The climb up Lingmoor Fell always seems go on and on so a relief to get to the small summit cairn on a rocky top. Then a careful run along the top followed by a ‘brakes off’ run off the top down to New Dungeon Ghyll to handover to Tom & Rory. Fabulous conditions, great company; felt like a privilege to be on the hill tonight.
