In reply to G8ADD:
but the continuation ridge looks quite enticing as an approach to High Raise, LD-019!
Prefer to finish off with this ridge. Starting at Grasmere then Easedale Tarn, Blea Rigg, Sgt Man, High White Stones, Greenup Edge and then the ridge to Helm Crag. A great days walk.
Love sitting on Thunacar Knott and watching the flies swarm over the Langdales - amusing to say the least.
It is of course quite feasible to bag Scafell and High White Stones in one day starting from Borrowdale. You just descend at Greenup to the ice cream shop.
Te views from Blea Rigg are in themselves stunning and every turn gives a different aspect. You could not wish for better. The descent from Helm Crag though is vile but has the advantage of the home-made icecream shop if it is open.
Starting with Book One of Wainwright and working my way through the book in stict alphabetical order. Means duplications but what the heck.
