The Walks

On the first day the group went up from the ODG to Blea Tarn, then on to Lingmoor Fell and down into Elterwater (Sid returning to the ODG to get his jacket and rejoining the group in Elterwater). From there to Skelwith Bridge, back along Little Langdale, up to Blea Tarn again and home to the ODG. About 11 miles (a bit less for Sid!)

On Friday the party went along to the New Hotel and up Stickle Ghyll to Stickle Tarn. Then round the back of Pavey Ark, up Bright Beck and onto the Pikes (Harrison first, then Pike O'Stickle). Finally over Martcrag Moor, down Stake Pass and back to the ODG. 8 miles.

On the final day the group ascended Scafell Pike from the hotel via Rossett Gill and Esk Hause. Then back and up to Esk Pike and Bow Fell, going down to the ODG via The Band. 12 miles, including about 1400 metres (4600 feet) of ascent.
