Leg 10, Old A66 nr Troutbeck to Mosedale Road end

Having negotiated a herd of excitable young cows Dawn and I arrived at the ascent of Souther Fell. The bracken was as heinous as we’d expected! We bashed on through it and eventually reached grass and then our first summit of the leg. Then a lovely run along to the col before the longer climb up Blencathra which was unusually quiet. Just one tent near the summit. Dawn called the young man out of his cosy sleeping bag to come and take a picture of us! Then we had the lovely descent down to Mungrisdale Common. It was such a joy to be on the grass after yesterday steep and rocky ground. The rest of the leg was pretty straight forward with good going and a few short climbs. Before we knew it we had reached the summit of Bowscale Fell, our final Wainwright of the leg. Then it was another fabulous grassy descent down to the road to hand over to Graham and Tom D.

Leg 16: Glenridding to Dockray. Steve and Patrick

11.05 and Max and Stan come barrelling into the changeover bang on schedule, Max coming to the well deserved end of two legs with only four hours sleep between them, an awesome contribution. 
Off we go, straight up Glenridding Dodd with Steve finding some good trods through the bracken and scree. A photo at each Wainwright hones our selfie taking skills and we make steady progress: Sheffield Pike, Hart Side (with a slight delay to help some misplaced walkers), the out and back taking in Raise and White Side. A good Bob Graham short cut takes us to Stybarrow Dodd by which time the sun has properly come out and so on to Watson’s Dodd, Great Dodd and then the last summit, Clough Head where some impromptu yodelling takes place. 
The route back to Dockray along the Old Coach Road seems to last for far too long but we are into Dockray soon enough with the dogs leading from the front for the handover to Adam and James. Hills, sunshine, running. What’s not to like?Image.jpeg
