Yoke, Ill Bell and Froswick

I had a choice of a few walks for this day, i could head to Great Gable or maybe pick off some behind Skiddaw. But this time I decided to finish off the Far Eastern Fells. This is my first book of the Wainwright’s that I have finished and one that I thought would be…

Aira Force

Ingra Tor, Swell Tor and round to Leather Tor
