Our first visit this year to The Howgills from Sedbergh was a good run with fine weather and excellent views,we seem to have got off to a good start with the weather,so lets test it with Tebay,certainly whenever we go on the East side of the M6 we have usually had bad weather,so we will try a familiar route on the west side.
If you thought Sebergh had a steep start,or Barbondale,then try this one for an exceptionally steep start up Jeffrey's mount,but then some excellent ridge running out towards Whinash( once a very controversial plan for a wind farm),and back possibly along the Borrowdale valley,(yes there are 2 borrowdales),or back along the ridge.
Come off M6 at Tebay junction and drive back through Tebay heading South on the A685,cross the m6,then on your right is a small cul de sac road to Borrowdale,plenty of parking just a short way in,see google map. OS route map below.
Well our very own Jules has decided to go for it this year,Starting with the Old County tops,he is then moving up to Jura to run the Paps,and to finish off in early June he will have a good look at the Ramsay round,actually more than giving it a good looking at,he is having a full attempt,so if anyone is up for helping,then all the details are here. Yes I know the concept of being able to keep up with him,whilst carrying supplies seems impossible,he will slow down,and any support will be much appreciated. The details are in this PDF
