Fri 29th May - Sun 31st May, 2020
Joint KMC-FRCC Hut2Hut meet
Please contact the meet leader or the club.
A joint KMC / FRCC walking / scrambling / climbing weekend with a few route options for all possible conditions.
The core idea is a sociable Hut 2 Hut walk departing from Salving House in Borrowdale early on Saturday 30th May, walking to Rawhead in Langdale for Saturday night the 31st May. Dinner will be provided at Rawhead by our expert catering team headed by Jo. Food will cost around £6-£7 or you could choose to eat at the Stickle Barn or New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel 20 mins walk away. We return to Salving House on Sunday 1st June via a different route. There are many excellent variations over different mountains with one or two possible scrambling options in both directions.
Borrowdale is great for climbing and a few of us may head up after work on Thursday 28th or early on Friday 29th to fit in a day at one of the many great crags in Borrowdale, or to fit in an extra days walking. If you are interested in an extra night, then please let us know.
Initially, bookings can be made by KMC full members and associate members until 1st April 2020. Any remaining spaces after this date will be available for members of other kindred clubs, registered prospective members or guests. There are twelve places reserved for the KMC in total.

There is an easier route in either direction following the Cumbria Way over Stake pass. - maybe around 12km with less than 600m of ascent, useful if weather is poor on one of the days or you are broken after Day 1.....
