Hill walking and wild camping in the Central Lakes

30th May 2017

The May trip to Borrowdale went to type, with both the bank holiday traffic and the bank holiday weather being fairly terrible at times!
Based at Seathwaithe Farm deep in Borrowdale, the extra day gave us a chance to really explore the central fells, with two of the three groups opting to wild camp on the hill overnight with a cheeky Grade 1 scramble thrown-in for good measure.
