150 Wainwrights Completed

My challenge to take 'Selfies' on every Wainwright passes the 150 barrier!

This is another update to an earlier blog regarding my challenge to take 'Selfies' on every one of the 214 Wainwrights. I have continued to make good progress and have now passed the 150 barrier.

My 150th Wainwright was Pike of Blisco (below) in Langdale, which was the first of five Wainwrights on an epic hike also covering Cold Pike, Crinkle Crags, Bowfell and Rossett Pike.

The hikes continue to be a mix of solo ventures together with hikes with family and friends. Another thank you to my hiking buddy Mike who has been a regular on many of the walks over the last few months, and also to my wife Helen who has now also picked up the Wainwright bagging bug.

There has been some fantastic scenery during the walks and I always take good quality camera gear with me, so as a result there are many landscape photos which have been added to the Lake District galleries on my website. I have, of course, also been taking 'Selfies', a few of which are shown below:

Times have been challenging for all due to COVID-19 and Wainwright bagging had to be slowed, and at times stopped, over the last few months. The pace should pick up now that many of the restrictions have been lifted. The remaining Wainwrights are further away from home, which means more travelling, but also provides a chance to get to know areas of the Lake District which I rarely visit and I am really looking forward to new experiences. Only 60 to go!
