Oh yes another trip to our president's country residence, kind of like Chequers.

Friday evening highlights: Wilhelm learns the intricacies of several drinking games (the theory, none was actually drinking). While Matt's tales of rampaging radioactive boars in Germany attracts amusement and scepticism in equal amounts (although an google search shows it cited in such reliable sources as the independent newspapers blog and fox news. So it must be true....)

The weather was kind with a lot of very good cloud and light around on Saturday, and not too much rain. Just a shame no one had a camera!(Except I did Jonny ;O) R) Jonny's walk was up over the fells behind Braithwaite village, up to Grasmore and round back over Grisedale pike. Done in good time to get back to the pub in Braithwaite. Robbie met a sausage man from the Orkney's (That is not a euphemism for anything! R). Dakota sampled the goods in a sandwich! Becci was not happy we lost the rugby. Jonny didn't care cos he had three pints.

Atmospheric lighting! View over towards Catbells and Highspy from Causey Pike.

Descending Grisdale Pike. Jonny, Dakota and Becci.

Ben led another walk which they can tell you all about...

Dinner was advertised as nine bean stew but we were mislead once again as it only had seven types of beans (One was Chick Peas, not a bean, and Stu left the Adzuki beans out. What are you like Stu!?! ). We escaped the telly and got to the pub. Everyone was trying to outdo one another for the most epic tale of wilderness survival, but Ian topped it with helicopters in the jungle. We didn't go with Stu to climb at Tebay services, although its bound to come into condition at some point this winter. Finished off with an infinite game of Irish snap.

The night was bitterly cold with snow and a meteor shower. The next day Jonny went up over striding edge and it cleared at the top with great views over the snow covered plateau, just a shame no one had a camera!

Ben did a walk...

And Ian and Robbie did Pinnacle Ridge with his mate, who has now assumed Robbies identity.

Henry and Ian on the Mod pitch of Pinnacle ridge (I'm the one who was crap and asked for the rope. R)

Ian descending the pinnacle!
