This weekend Anna and I joined Andy, Sabiene and Arthur in Langdale, where they are staying this week in a small cottage. Saturday found us on the Fairfield Horseshoe.
It was hazy and a little overcast, but the sun gradually burnt through and it was HOT! As usual I didn’t take enough water and got a little dehydrated (solved later in the pub).
Its a great walk, and once the bulk of the ascent is done there is afairly level wander around the ridge. the only disappointment is the detour and descent to take in Stone Arthur. It seems odd to descend to one of Wainwrights “tops” but as Sabiene is detemined to do them all we had to do it.
We raced the final descent to reach the pub at Rydal , the Badger Bar for some much needed refreshment
