Thank you everyone who trialled our Y3P route map. Suggestions were very helpful and it's now in print and proving very popular.

No argument with that philosophy, that is what makes time studying maps, websites and exploring worthwhile. Doesn't always come off though http://www.haroldstreet.org.uk/routes/download/?walk=3295  O0
But good on you for trying with that one  O0

General Walking Discussion / Re: "Quality Mountain Days"
« Last post by tonyk on Today at 11:58:10 »

They were usous this "in-term" at least a decade ago... So not jumping on any and wagons. Not sure what they next part of you statement means either. It's for people who want to go on and study to get their ML not go on a guided walk...



Its an unfortunate term.Its quite easy to confuse the term with "quality time",that nauseating term used originally by selfish yuppies as an excuse for not spending enough time with their kids.
In the past these type of demanding mountain days would be desribed as "hard" which is exactly what they are and exactly what you need to test someone who wants to be a leader.

Probably, IMHO there is a limited amount of pleasure to be had in working out more and more ways up the same mountain to see the same view as opposed to finding more mountains to go up.  :)
Ah but I didnít say that, I do get that doing the same thing all the time, or very similar, may not suit some people, me neither to be honest. What I mean is that itís not necessarily about getting to the top of the same hill or mountain by different ways, but the fact that there are many other areas, paths, and undiscovered places in an an area the size of Snowdonia, or the lakes, or the Beacons to explore, again that may be not to everyoneís taste but Iím still being surprised by what I find in my little neck of the woods p :)

Hi Couchwalker, welcome from the south coast north near Portsmouth.

The Wayfarers passes within 100 ft of my garden.
The Monarch's Way passes through Hampshire, so does the South Downs Way, Allan Kings Way, Solent Way, Isle or Wight Coastal Path, Clarendon Way, Three Downs Link, the Hampshire Way,
the Games Way, E-Route UK Section, Southern Coast to Coast (276miles),
I've walked whole and section of these .

Jon.

Decent walk on Dartmoor after work today.   Got in plenty of climbing ready for the lakes. Branston loaf from the very bottom, not done that one before quite a slog. Then straight back down to Meldon and up High Willhays via Black tor .  O0


I've had 2 goes at Dartmoor this week and each time the weather was down to the deck - how do you do it?

So it does need a tweak then 😉
