Langdale Pikes today we were going to do Jacks Rake on Pavey Ark but it was quite slippy early on so gave it a swerve.

Great pic that pal when you look up to Pinnacle Ridge from the foot of St Sunday Crag it looks a hell of a slog to get there never mind start rock climbing afterwards.

When you`re on the Ridge itself it`s not as bad as it looks on the photo, as you say Alan the worst bit is getting to the foot of the ridge - traversing quite steep hillside across scree.

Even worse if you miss the Elmhow zigzag path, as I did on my first trip to Pinnacle Ridge. Remember reading somewhere that the flank of St Sunday is one of the steepest fellsides in England. Certainly felt that way making our way up there!

We're in the same boat mate. Just started and not knowing much we've so far done Grike and Cragg fell from cold fell side a couple of times and a few walks around whinlatter forest itself plus you can branch off from there and do a couple of others like Barf and Lords seat. Did that last week and was decent. No where near the standard these lads on here are at though. I've also realised I'm scared of heights well scared of falling!!!

This is a walk that me `n` our lass have done many a time and enjoy it every time, and would be a good introductory hillwalk for anyone thinking of taking up the admirable pastime.
Setting off from Keswick - take the ferry to Nicol End at Portinscale, then walk through the woodland to the foot of Catbells - up and over Catbells to the col at Hawse Gate, follow the good path downhill to the road, turn left and walk through Manesty Park to the jetty at Brandlehow, catch the ferry back to Keswick and indulge yourself with a Half Cow Pie and chips and a few sherbets at the George Hotel - absolute heaven.

Castle Crag from Grange is a nice starter walk not too much height to it but great veiws down Derwentwater .


Best advice invest in some properly fitted boots dont just go for cheap that feel ok in shop its a cast to bite you on the arse .

I was going to suggest Castle Crag, what a view for little effort although the slate can be quite slippy when wet. You can also carry on up the main path from Grange and then turn right onto High Spy and along the ridge of Maiden Moor and down Catbells towards Keswick.

One of the first walks MRF&I done was Catbells when there was around 200 Germans up there, I thought we'd been invaded.

for novices..start off easy, then gradually build up, learn to use a map, perhaps go out with an experienced mate first, and as Alan said..good boots are essential.

We had had our annual week in the lakes this week gone and with the forecast for the week indicating Monday would be the best day of the week I took the decision to climb the Magnificient 7. I deliberately chose not to attend Carlisle v Stevenage. I guess that highlights my frustration at the current debacle.

Anyway it was a wonderful day. Started at Torver. Climbed Dow Crag via the South Rake. Great scramble. Finished in the Sun Hotel. Some great pints.

My wife always takes the children for a day to allow me to do a 'big' walk. Got some great walks in with them as well.

Slightly off topic, but it's a sad day for the climbing world following the death of the ridiculously talented alpinist Ueli Steck.

The Swiss mountaineering legend fell 1km to his death on the slopes of Nuptse, as he made preparations to scale both Everest and Lhotse, the later being the fourth highest peak in the world. His antics in the Alps and the Himalaya were beyond belief, pushing the boundaries well beyond what was thought possible.

I've been following his exploits for the best part of a decade, and was shocked to hear the news. This man seemed to be invincible, and his death is a reminder that no man can tame nature.

RIP Ueli, a true giant of the hills.
