    Bob Graham route choice

    A year or two ago there was a good thread all about various route choices for parts parts of the BGR, but I cant find it.

    I was wondering about the ascent of Kirk Fell on a Clockwise round,

    Fence Line
    First gully or
    Second gully

    Thanks

    I'm a new convert to going round to the right and meeting the fence line as it comes in on the left. Far less loose ground there, less than the bloody gullies which I've developed a bit of a hatred for!

    I haven't tried the fence line yet but i have gone up both gullies. The first one was loose and the second one more steeper and grassier, was just wondering what the preferred choice was.

    I follow the fence, used to come in from the right but I'm starting to prefer the left now as its less steep at the start.

    At the top of the last steep bit I like to trend left around a small crag, avoids the rock step.

    The gullies are ok for descending but going up the easy scramble over the crag is better.

    up the gullies ?
    are you mad ??!!

    nice thing about the scramble is that you get to use your arms alot - big relief for the legs.
