At one month and two days old We managed to summit our first Wainwright as a new family. Those first few weeks had felt like an eternity, so getting to the top of a fell, even a small one, felt like a great achievement.
Great Mell Fell has a steep ascent but you get fabulous views for miles across The Lakes and the Eden Valley from the top. You also get to see funky windswept trees on the way up! It left me sore but was worth it.
From this point I thought that we will start to walk the Wainwrights. There are 214 to go at, so it will keep us busy. But I figured also a good way of heading up fells that we don’t walk out of habit.
Question is….. how long will this take?
