The major achievement of the year was the completion of 4 hill lists. This sounds more impressive than it actually is because 3 of them started and finished on the same summits.
Those lists were :
- The Wainwrights
214 summits listed in Wainwright’s 7 Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells
- The Fellrangers
227 summits listed in Mark Richards’ 8 Fellranger guidebooks
- The FRCC244
244 summits listed in “The Lakeland Fells” published by the Fell & Rock Climbing Club
- The Outlying Fells
116 summits featured (but not all named) in Wainwright’s guide to the Outlying Fells of Lakeland
Overall I :
went on 18 walks
walked 111.9 miles
ascended 36,050 feet
walked for 76 hrs 46 mins (including rest stops !)
reached 45 individual summits that I hadn’t been to before
reached 12 individual summits that I had been to before
drove 2479 miles on trips to and from walks
I don’t think that I did a lot in 2013 but the completion of the Wainwrights after 30 years makes up for a relatively quiet year.
Happy New Year and be safe on the hills in 2014!
