|top of Rannerdale Knotts|
It was a full moon tonight so we went to, what we thought would be a dark, low light pollution Buttermere valley, thinking we would have a lovely moonlit run. There seemed to be quite a bit of cloud cover but we still had a nice run. Very nice night, no wind.
We parked at the corner just by the wall before the road bends and then ran a little way up the road before climbing steeply up to the summit. From here we ran along the ridge and down Rannerdale Valley, back around to the car adding a tiny little road section to make it up to 5k.
It was dark, very dark on top of Rannerdale Knotts. We turned our headtorches off for a while and there was no way you could have made your way down without light. Even though I had a spare battery and a separate spare headtorch, I was still glad to get back to the car.
