Sun 29 Mar 1992

Route: Glenridding village - White Side - Helvellyn - Grisedale Tarn - Glenridding village

With: On Own


Low visibility, windy and driving snow on the tops.

I had lost my keys for our flat in New Malden, Surrey while staying with my parents in Sussex. Anne was having a walking holiday in the Lakes. Solution: Get up early on the Sunday, borrow my parents car drive to the Lakes and get Anne's set. I arrived late morning and as I could only meet Anne in the evening at Patterdale Youth Hostel I went for a walk! After the walk I went to the Youth Hostel, surprised Anne, collected keys, drove home for work Monday morning, a long day.
