By the time you read this…

…I’ll be heading north to do battle with the last dregs of my Wainwright round.  With 10 Western fells to do to complete the 214, plus another two nearby Southern fells that I want to redo as I used a car to get to them, I’m hoping that by the weekend I’ll be celebrating the end.

I briefly toyed with the idea of making a big thing out of the final fell and having a big group walk, but after a bit of soul searching decided that I really wanted to complete in the same manner that I’ve ticked off the vast majority of the fells – alone, just me and the fells. Well, that and the fact that I don’t know when I’ll next get an opportunity to do the last one if I don’t do it now.

So I’m heading for somewhere on the 77/77A bus route to begin the task of mopping up the final fells. Unusually for me I don’t have a route planned out. I’ve spent several hours working out various ways of doing it, and in the end concluded I didn’t like the way any of them fitted, so I’ve decided to simply make it up as I go along. This is quite a departure for me. So it will be interesting to see how successful it is.

By the way the ones I have left are:

  • Fellbarrow
  • Low Fell
  • Burnbank Fell
  • Blake Fell
  • Gavel Fell
  • Hen Comb
  • Seatallan
  • Middle Fell
  • Buckbarrow

and of course, Haystacks being the designated final fell.

The two I’m looking to repeat are Scafell Pike and Great End.

If I do all of this it will be a complete carless round – quite an achievement considering I live in Essex. So wish me luck, and you can follow my progress on Social Hiking.
