Meet Report Langdale 11-13th January 2019

Thanks to all 19 members who made this such a sociable weekend in the comfortable FRCC hut Raw Head. Unfortunately this year not a trace of snow or ice – in fact out of the wind jackets off was the dress code!
Sue M and myself took advantage of Friday’s good forecast to ascend Pike of Blisco meeting John S and Kathy at the summit – fabulous all round views. A cozy evening round the coal fire on Friday as we all arrived.
Saturday forecast rain and increasingly strong winds and parties did various routes to Lingmoor Fell, Elterwater to Cathedral Quarries and Red Tarn by various running and walking routes, with Vanda, Paul and Hugh getting back last to the hut after a very wet ascent of Browney Gill and The Old Dungeon Ghyll.
Fantastic teamwork organised by site supervisor Leon had us consuming 6 different home cooked curries. We managed to eat them all and the apple crumble from John B and birthday cake made by Josie for Leon!
Sunday’s forecast of more rain and winds gusting 60mph didn’t deter Gemma and Kial from running up to Red Tarn and getting back before the Bowfell party of 6 set off! We got as far as Three Tarns after an interesting river crossing at the foot of Hell Gill before the strong gusts persuaded us to head down and homewards meeting Sean at the hut who had been blown along Mickleden.
