Hannah's first Wainwright

Hannah is my daughter.  She was three in October and, for a while now, we have been waiting for a good day to take her up her first Wainwright.  Castle Crag is famously the smallest Wainwright and the only one below 1000 feet tall with a total height of 951 feet.  Despite its miniscularity, Castle Crag has a lot going for it, lovely views, steep sections and a 'proper' top to it (unlike some Wainwrights I could mention).

So, all wrapped up, we set off from Rosthwaite along the farm track towards the river:

Oh, yeah, that seems a lot easier.

great fun.

and the view isn't bad either.

over the wall, not far now.

one down, 213 to go.

come on slow-poke!

we did it!

let's head back, I think I know a short cut.

At the Lakeland Pedlar afterwards, "I want that, that, that and that".
