Spent the night camping above the Corridor Route Great End,
Cumbria. After a leisurely start I set off down towards
Styhead Pass in clearing weather. I took my time in the descent
as overnight drizzle had left the stoned path a bit slippery in
At the Styhead stretcher box I could
see people walking up the valley as I descended.
My tent before sunrise. Great Gable is in the background.
Looking across to Lingmell
Styhead Tarn below
Happy New Year greetings were exchanged every time I med
someone. Before the last steep descent before Stockley Bridge I
stopped for a while and a couple of backpackers came down the
trail and we had a brief chat. They were a couple and looked
like they had an ancient 2 person tent. They’d camped at
Sprinkling Tarn and there were 3 other tent already there when
they arrived yesterday. They continued down and I followed
later. I reached my car and had an easy drive home.
