Tracy and I have had a six year break from the fells, and doing Cat Bells the other day reminded us what we’ve been missing. We figured that our Jamie was still maybe just a little bit too small for long strenuous climbs, but having heard about our Cat Bells adventure he really wanted to ‘climb a mountain’ – as he put it. So it was particularly special today when he joined us for his first ‘Wainwright’ – an 8km walk taking in High Rigg (1161ft, 354m)…
The summit of High Rigg is on the left in the middle distance.

Looking south from the summit, White Side and Helvellyn on the left, Thirlmere and Raven Crag, with Ullscarf in the distance.
Bassenthwaite Lake just to the right of the cairn, Latrigg (covered in forest), with Dodd above, Carl Side, Skiddaw and Lonscale Fell and Tewet Tarn.
