In Summer 2009, the Revised Edition of Alfred Wainwright’s Seventh Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells is to be published. To celebrate

this publication, and also the completion of the work done by Chris Jesty, the Wainwright Society challenged its members to record ascents

of all the 214 Lakeland Fells between the 9th and 17th May.


Hallin Fell was my chosen fell but because of personal commitments it was completed a little before the dates chosen by The Society (in

combination with my own personal challenge of completing all the fells identified in Alfred Wainwright’s The Outlying Fells of Lakeland).


Climbing the fells was also used as a fund raising event for two Search and Rescue Dog Associations – SARDA (England) and Sarda ((Lakes)
