It wasn't exactly the crack of dawn, but I still managed to leave Seathwaite early enough to be one of the first cars to crab a space along what is an extremely popular start point for walkers. I assume quite a few of the others would be heading up to Scafell Pike or the higher fells in that area. I on the other hand opted for the quieter route up to Gillercomb and Base Brown.
Some fells just seem to get left out of walks for one reason or another and this is often the case with Base Brown which I hadn't been to since November 2007. With this in mind I thought it was about time I paid a visit.
