With global warming really taking hold, the world seems to have been flipped on its head, with the Lakes enjoying weather reminiscent of the summer of’ ’76.

We met up with Chris, a friend from Herne Bay who was staying at Wasdale YHA with a large group of friends. They had decided on a walk up to Napes to “thread the needle”………… I must admit I didn’t realise just how long it would take 20 or so Non-climbers to do this, but it was such a nice day , a long lunch could be taken while it all happened.

After lunch it was up to the top of Great Gable, and what views!!!!

Down to Styhead and then the sprint back to the Wasdale Head Inn where the welcoming beer was much anticipated. :yum:
