I am stuck down south with no chance of a reccie of the route for the country show fell race in July.
Last year I didnt enter as it was our first planned visit to Coniston - I then spent the early mornings of our hols learning the tourist route to the top f the Old Man (up Walnar Scar concrete Rd - right at the car park and wiggle up past the mines etc to the summit). We went back in the autumn and I realised (I do know this sounds pretty dumb but living in the south means I just have to grab chances when I can) there's many routes.. and had a go at one which takes you past the copper mines, only getting as far as the pudding stone
Anyhow.. what I really need is someone with some patience to try and help me understand how I get to the top away from the obvious tourist path - I really am itching to have a go at the race this year
Any help would be truley appreciated
