Second walk of this holiday and a classic one at that. Wainwright claims the mile of walking across the Crinkles to be the finest ridge mile in Lakeland. That’ll do for me, with the bonus of Bowfell at the far end and a fantastic descent by The Band.
After getting a taster for Lakeland fell walking last summer, this was our second Wainwright and a much more sedate family friendly walk. Rain threatened later in the walk as we reached the summit but thankfully stayed away, although it did cool the temperature down a fair bit!
