Walk Notes

Easy start to the day through the lower reaches of Wensleydale, across pastures, green fields and through scenic villages. We begged a bag drop at the Aysgarth Falls Hotel and unencumbered apart from a half filled pack, which we shared all day, we fairly scampered up Wasset Fell, onto the long boggy slog across Naughtberry Hill and over the badly eroded Buckden Pike. The wind was relentless today and if it had not been at our backs the day would have been impossible. The decision not to camp on Buckden Pike was sound, there was little shelter and so we descended to Kettlewell using the same route we used a couple of weeks ago. The route over Great Whernside will wait for better weather and stronger legs!
