Ahh.. coming from the US of A then!
Hope you have a great time and the weather is kind to you.
Weather hasn't been great in the Lakes this summer but September can be really nice.
Let us know how you get on.

Canada, actually. Yes, I've been following the weather and I realise it's not great. However, I'm used to the Lake District. You take whatever you get. I'll definitely post my experience with avoiding Dore Head screes when I get back.  :)

I remember coming down Dore Head screes about 25 years ago, I used to reckon it was the hardest 1000' I'd done, up or down. For donkeys years I kept a bit of scree about the size of my thumb as a souvenir after I found it in my boot when I took it off.
