Yeah! And now the profiteers step in raising rates and prices for no other reason than they can use this as an excuse that it's 'necessary'. I've heard a lot of moaning this lunchtime that everything will go up. Rates, taxes, V.A.T. except benefits which will go down.
It probably will but there's no immediate reason to do it, and I've not heard any reason why Osborne claimed there'd be a 30 billion black hole in public spending when we'll save 18 billion that we initially send to the EU.
Tryfan is listed as an easy scramble not even a grade 1 I believe but to read all this indicates that its not easy to navigate along the ridge and its not that easy to actually walk. Skip's isn't the only thread on here to indicate that finding an easy route along the north ridge is not easy and it is easy to wander off and get crag fast.
The news section in MWIS has had a few stories about people being rescued because they took what looked like an easy option and they got stuck.
All a bit off putting because I'd like to go back and try and do it again. But like Skip I'm no longer a nimble nipper and my legs won't bend or stretch as far a s they used too. As for my arms and upper body strength
I've done a couple of walks in the Loweswater area. I like the pub there. Kirkstile Inn(?) if I remember correctly. It has its own micro brewery and is in a lovely location. On a warm day its great to sit outside on the terrace supping a beer or even a coffee. Our coffee drinker was even offered a paper to read!
Our last trip we climbed up between Melbrook Top North and Melbrook Top South following a printed route from go4awalk.com. And I do mean climb. We were following a fence up the hill and it was so steep we were using the fence to pull ourselves up. Much grumbling about that choice of route.
