    If you still have it could you send it to me?
    Thank you
    Here's mines and there's one on page 14 as well.

    Completed this on Good Friday in 11:15 going S-N. Pretty hot and water sources higher up pretty dry. Had to detour to Calf Cove on the way up Great End for water as was desperate by then! Also added White Pike (near White Maiden) and also Little Stickle near the start as I didnít look at the map properly!

    Enjoyed it loads. I got 33M and 12,100í all told.

    I reckon Calf cove is just as good a way up. There is a trod on a dead reckon straight from there.

    Yes I found that and was surprised and found it to be easy and pleasant. The water was such a godsend

    Well done Mark. Nothing wrong with a bit of route deviation, I bagged Hell Gill Pike and a couple of other stray Birketts enroute when I did the CT last year.

    Send me details and I'll add you to the register. Cumbriantraverse@gmail.com

    Have done so. Tremendous route and enjoyed the bus and train ride back to the start the next day, plus the jog from Foxfield
