    I am monitoring the weather on this one. My thought was to go for:
    Red Pike from Black Beck, 2*,grade 2, and one of the longest mountaineering scrambles in the Lakes. However, I have not done it, the Evans guide says the rock is treacherous when wet and there is heavy rain forecast for Thursday.

    My alternative idea is Wistow Crags, 3* grade 2 or 3, which I did about 20 years ago and is also a good long mountaineering route – it has the advantage of being south facing, so probably quicker drying.

    The forecast for Saturday is OK at the moment, cool but dry.

    Both routes start from Mosedale, accessible via the packhorse bridge behind the Wasdale Head pub. Meet in front of the pub at 9.30. As usual car share will be available from the Lakeland Business Park in Cockermouth, leaving at 8a.m. If interested please e-mail me at judithbrown3@aol.com.

    Assume the meet is ON, but I will e-mail if forecast deteriorates.
