Buttermere YHA Weekend – 20th to 22nd April

High Clint Hawes 11 March 2012

Walking can be wonderful at this time of year. Spring can bring out the sun and the flowers; it can also bring out the walkers and a bumper crop assembled in Hawes for the High Clint walk.

Whitcliffe to Downholme 1 March 2012

 

On an extra-schedule walk, three of us (DW, RK & I) glanced at the solar panels on my roof, sparkling in the sunshine, as we climbed up the West Field to the water trough. We wondered if this was the spring that provided the (lead) piped water to Richmond in 1583? Does anyone know?

Seathwaite Hut 24-26 February 2012

Last night I dreamt I went to Seathwaite again (apologies to Daphne du Maurier). Then I woke up in a cold sweat....

Scottish Winter Monros 2012

Posted by Swaledale Outdoor Club on 2012-03-01

SCOTTISH WINTER MUNROS

 

As usual in February an assault on the Scottish Munros in winter was organised by John and Tim Deighton and 18 walkers/climbers took part, over 50% being SOC members. Again we stayed at Tulloch Station and enjoyed the fine food which  Belinda and Alan served up. We also attempted to determine the best single malt whisky in Scotland but alas failed to come to any conclusion!

Kings Canyon to Yosemite by the "High Route"

Posted by Swaledale Outdoor Club on 2012-02-23

Yosemite valley in California is well known to readers of the climbing press for its vast granite crags, but the valley is less than twenty square km in the midst of a huge national park covering over three thousand. The park itself is only a small fraction of a mountain range including the less-visited Kings Canyon and Sequoia National parks, and vast tracts of Forest Service lands, much of it designated wilderness.

Walk from Thimbleby – Sunday 5th February 2012

 

What a fantastic day. Clear blue sky, hardly a breath of wind and powder snow on a firm frozen footing as Yvonne A, Ann L, Judy Web, Keith P and I set out up Sands Lane to Thimbleby Bank. It was quite magical as we ascended the ridge on a path of unbroken snow through the forest to Big Wood before turning down to Oak Dale.
