    That's an interesting line, I just go to Cowpers Cross and then direct to West Buck Stones. I think it takes longer, but its easier on the legs and you arrive at the same point fresher. Its a bit like going over esk pike vs the runners traverse at langdale.

    I didnít know left of the wall was out of bounds. In that case in future Iíd go via cowpers cross rather than along the right of the wall unless itís very dry.

    Could it ever be dry? Frozen is more of a possibility. I remember many years ago before I was aware of the left-hand option when everything was frozen solid, including the lakes over the bogs. I stood on one and peered through the ice to the abyss below. This year was the first time I've followed the RHS since then. I was lucky to not find the bog monster.

    true. I don't know what the conditions were like the year Graham did it in around 2hrs 30 - which seems insane - but presumably dry or frozen.
