5th December 2019 - I'm struggling for a title

A settled period of weather had me thinking.

Ever since Tony and I had managed to sneak between Death's Head and Notts II I'd wanted to go on another through trip taking Dick along with us. The perfect trip for this would be Death's Head to Lost John's, but of course it requires dry weather in order to traverse the master cave.

It hadn't rained for days and looking ahead there were clear skies... until about 6pm on Thursday evening when the heavens were due to open, typical. A phone call from OfStEd though meant that Dick was made unavailable so the slightly squirmier and not as weather dependent Boxhead to Notts II was on.

5pm and a larger than usual team assembled at Devil's bridge before driving up through the dense fog to Leck Fell.

28th November 2019 - Simpson's

'oversuits are so last year' - Tony. A quick through trip with Mike and Tony.
