Walk 11: Walking On Water

Water Crag from Tan Hill: Today began with the long drive up to Tan Hill for the twentieth peak on our list, Water Crag.

This wasn’t because we were almost at our starting point of Leck Fell House, or the fact that it had been three weeks since we were at Mallerstang, it was to do with the fact that if Leeds Utd won that afternoon, they would be promoted back to the Championship at our third attempt.
