Exposed ridge scramble, must be comfortable with exposure. A mountain summit. And a descent as darkness falls.

Back for a third year on the trot, this is a chance to see a mid summer sunset from the top of one of Lakeland's iconic summits. We watched from Helvellyn in 2018, the top of England from Scafell Pike in 2019, and this year, weather permitting, we'll watch a glorious display from Saddleback (or Blencathra) . What's more, we'll ascend via the exhilarating Sharp Edge, reaching the summit plateau in time for sunset.

If the weather is poor, the event may take place in a pub instead!

This is one of three consecutive day walks, Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday. Should you need accommodation, why not join Rob and John at Burns Farm Campsite nearby. If you want to camp, please take note!!

Rob has arranged for the site to accept a booking for 15 for two nights although they don't normally take group bookings. If you wish to camp, please contact the site direct (see website link below) and ask for one of the 15 spaces prebooked by Rob Mitchell from OutdoorLads. You will pay on arrival at the site. I've promised that we will obey site rules, e.g. noise. Everything you need to know about the site is on their website.
