Other peaks climbed on this trip

My final Wainwright, with ALT, BC, KM, RS, JS and Bryher. We set off from the Armboth car park by Thirlmere, taking the steep path up by Fisher Gill onto the boggy plateau. A bog trot followed, and a short pull up to the summit. Summit celebrations ensued, with the imbibing of rhubarb gin and eating of cake and chocolates. We then headed to Armboth Fell, visiting both of its summits as red deer stags barked their mating call. We continued to the rocky knoll of Fisher Crag 421m/18m, before descending by forest tracks back to Thirlmere. A celebratory drink in Grasmere followed.

Grey and cloudy, with the cloud-base about 600 metres. Light southerly wind, with no rain
