In October 2016 I had a brilliant walk over the High Street fells and for no particular reason I had a bite to eat overlooking Hall Cove which is found high in the Upper Kentmere area. While I sat there I more or less came up with the idea of devising a series of walks that would take me into the Lake Districts many coves. Once I got home I added the Combe(s), and then I added the Holes. After sorting it all out into something that made sense, I'd ended up with an out of the ordinary fell walking project made up of 30 walks all with the same theme. OK, I realise it might seem a bit odd and something that many people would view as pointless but as far as fell walking goes, you may have worked out that I don't do normal visiting a list summits projects.
I'm simply approaching this as an out of the ordinary series of walks which will take me into the Coves, Comb(e)s and Holes of the Lake District.
I'd already made the decision to start this in 2017 but hadn't put any thought at all into the exact date or even the exact month. Today, I had a later than normal start and to an extent made a snap decision to do the first walk of the project. As this is the easiest / shortest of the walks it fit in perfectly with the time I had, the conditions and the time of year.
