The weather was typically terrible this morning so we decided to tackle Walla Crag the opposite direction walking along the banks of Derwentwater from Keswick to Ashness Gate landing in the pouring rain. We started the climb up to Falcon Crag via Ashness Bridge just as the clouds began to lift and reached Walla Crag in brilliant sunshine. The view was spectacular and well worth the climb. Our Discover shoes were superb, so light and stable even on the roughest ground thanks to the way your foot is cupped by the sole. Vibram rollingait system gave our tired legs a lot more spring than normal shoes or boots. A short slog back down the hill to town was straight forward. The 9km on the map turned out to be more like 12 thanks to some path closures but it was a fun day out, even Daisy the Spaniel, had a good time.
