Thanks for looking

Yeah... Binsey is a bit of an outlier. I had to make a wide loop on two occasions in order to include it in rounds of the Northern Fells. I was passing quite close to it only last Wednesday, but an ascent would have turned a long day into a very long day.

yeah, i kopped out, drove to Binsey, done it then went and parked not far from Overwater to do the back o' skiddaw.
Thats not really a kop out, at least you gave it respect by spending time climbing it
You could say I kopped out by making it a linear walk and, catching a taxi to the start and using one at the finish. I'm really interested to see how others did it or would do it
The first time I climbed Binsey, it was just one fell on a long, long day of walking.
The second time I climbed Binsey was when I was halfway round bagging all the Wainwright Fells in a continuous, four-week long trek over all of them. That particular day started from an elevated wild camp in the gap between Skiddaw and Skiddaw Little Man, then involved picking off summits all the way to Lonscale Fell, Latrigg and Dodd, before climbing steeply to bag Carl Side, Long Side and Ullock Pike. A handy road-side pit-stop provided by a friend ensured that I was re-hydrated with half a gallon of orange juice, then came the long walk to Binsey and a descent to a campsite near Bassenthwaite.
