Diary for The Grand Van Tour


Old Man of Coniston

2008-07-16 to 2008-07-17

Back to the countryside (and rain) and the chance to prepare for the assault on Helvellyn at the weekend. The plan here was to make a late effort to get the walking legs working with a quick stroll up the Old Man of Consiston. Unfortunately the weather was rubbish for the 2 days here so we just managed a bike ride round the lake and a couple of games of scrabble!
