Saturday 2nd April

The plan was a steady one, after last weekends double leg which gave me and Paul some leg problems (well knees mainly!). I met Paul on his home patch,at the village of Bampton.
We set off from Bampton after a quick brew. Fortunately the weather was now very sunny with broken cloud, which was a surprise after the 04:30 thunderstorm and heavy rain continuing onwards to mid morning.
We ran from Bampton up a nice little path that traversed Bampton common eventually landing on the bridleway between Wether hill and Red Crag. We swiftly continued onwards up on to High Raise and on to Kidsty Pike and the fast descent down to Haweswater. After a water stop we continued along the reservoir path back to Bampton.
Paul still had a problem with his knee on the descent, I felt OK with no problems this week. Back to Paul's I was treated to fresh coffee, tea and cheese on toast. Yet again another fantastic day on the fell with good weather and nice warm sun.

13.5 miles with 2500 feet of ascent.
