Walk 12: All Aboard

Sails, Swarth Fell & Wild Boar Fell from Angerholme: It had been three weeks since we last walked, but we would be making up for it this weekend as we had a B&B booked, and we were doing four peaks over two days. I felt very excited as we found a place to park along the B6259 and climbed out of the car into glorious sunshine.

Lovely Seat & Great Shunner Fell from Hardraw: I was slightly apprehensive as we parked up in Hardraw and waited for the others to arrive. I had some limited experience with Whernside and Ingleborough but today I was about to tackle the third highest peak in the Yorkshire Dales and I didn’t know what it may involve.
