This came up in another thread yesterday. So what was your first Wainwright?
Mine was Red Pike - the Buttermere one but I always think of it as the Ennerdale one as I went up it from High Gillerthwaite.
I was 17 and at sixth form. A couple of teachers who were courting, and subsequently got married, used to take a small group of us on walking weekends. We got dropped somewhere along Ennerdale Water, the teacher then drove the minibus to Buttermere and got a taxi to drop him back to us. We went up Red Pike and along the ridge to Haystacks, then dropped down Warnscale Beck to the lake.
This trip definitely gave me a taste for it.
