T5 Post Icon wainwright walks

Does anyone on here share my enthusiasm for completing the wainwrights. I camped in waser on thursday with the full intention of staying to sunday but mother nature arrived with a vengeance so we beat a hasty retreat yesterday....satvan kept directing me to go back the way we came over the hardknott pass which I politely declined.....

Lingmoor fell with coniston in the background


.....going over the hardknott on thursday, glorious sunshine....


....middle fell with the x2 scafells in the background...


...and a very very windy seatallan......


help! .....I've lost me legs!....

I'm not a Wainwright 'bagger' as such but certainly share your love of the Lakes, I'll be up there myself in a fortnight but I'm on crutches at the moment so no fell bagging for me this time

Great pics, thanks for sharing. We've had a couple of short breaks in the lakes and will be doing more when the van is converted. We camped near Coniston and I will never forget how tired I felt after a (very hot) day long walk taking in 'The Old Man' with my 2 year old daughter on my back in one of those carriers. We also did Catbells and then I did Scafell Pike with some friends. Happy days.
