About the event
Join SUP & Summit on this glorious 8 hour-ish (depending on group pace) guided walk in the Lake District, the start of which is just a 15 minute drive from Windermere. A supportive, friendly and encouraging welcome awaits you from a qualified mountain leader (also first-aider and registered nurse) and all the other participants.
The route will take us to the glorious summits of Thornthwaite Crag (784m), High Street (828m), The Knott (739m), Rest Dodd (696m) and Angletarn Pikes (567m) - 5 Wainwright’s in total. If you don't know who Wainwright is....look him up....Alfred....an icon of Cumbria.
You don’t need to be a seasoned hill walker to take part but you do need sufficient fitness to walk for at least 8 hours on steep paths (on ascent and descent), with reasonable balance, core stability and coordination. We will journey at a comfortable pace, allowing for plenty of photo opportunities and refreshment stops as necessary.
Sturdy, well worn-in walking boots and walking poles are essential as the path will be uneven, slippy and potentially boggy in places.
