High House 7th – 11th October 2022

Nuneaton Hill Walking and Mountaineering Club

HIGH HOUSE 7th -10th OCTOBER 2022

Various short walks were accomplished on the Friday we all travelled to High House, Borrowdale.  This is a favourite mountain hut and once we got the stove up and running it all began to feel a bit like home.

On Saturday most of us headed up towards Great Gable.  One group traversed the mountain below Napes Needle and up from the other side whilst our team took a more direct ascent via Aaron Slack and straight to the top.  The rock were greasy after recent rain so care was required but we all made it to the top.  The descent was via Green Gable and eventually down Sourmilk Gill which was very slow going on the slippery surface.
A good time was had that evening as we all enjoyed a group meal together.

On Sunday we mostly headed up Grains Gill.  One group then went on to Allen Crags and Glaramara whist the other took a tour of the various tops of Seathwaite Fell before descending by Styhead Tarn and Taylorgill Force.
Those able to stay a further night had another walk on Monday before heading home.  Myself and Nick did a round of the hill country to the east of Rosthwaite, Cat Bells was climbed by another team whilst others took in Helvellyn from Thirlmere.  An excellent weekend.
