Day Three - Rosthwaite to Grasmere
Stayed at Glenthorne B&B, Grasmere. Ate in the evening at Tweedies Bar, Grasmere (excellent food and beer, but quite pricey!)
Route: Rosthwaite, Stonethwaite, Lining Crag, Greenup Egde, Far Easedale and Grasmere.
A challenging day on the Lakeland fells; persistent rain, streams in spate, 50 metres visibility and strong winds across Greenup Edge. At one point there were 10 additional people to the 10 people I was guiding across Greenup Edge (20 people in total!). One couple we met were lost, cold, tired, ill equipped and out of their depth; trainers, a light summer cagoule and only Wainwright's book are not sufficient to get you across the Lakeland mountains, especially in a storm. It ended up with a Mountain Rescue call out for this couple, who were in serious difficulties. Our group all got down safely to Grasmere.
Due to the weather I took photos on my GoPro, which I can't upload until I finish the walk in 10 days time! Although I did take this photo just before we set off from Rosthwaite.
