This year I am taking my (by myself) holiday in the Lake District, staying at the Ambleside end of Windermere in a pleasant little hotel. My motivation is a desire to revisit this beautiful area that I have visited many times in the past, though not for many years, to see if I can still make it to the tops of the hills and, of course, to pick up a few caches, many aimed at furthering the many challenges I have set myself, including qualifying for one or two challenge caches.

The Old Man then North before circling round and back via Levers Water to the car, the exact amount being determined by how well I was going and the weather. Well, the legs held out and the weather was excellent and all caches attempted were found. An excellent day snatched before the rain arrived on Sunday.
From Levers Water I made the slightly tricky descent down the right hand side of the stream and then the easy traverse across to the cache which was soon found after a little scrambling to reach GZ. I do like a LARGE - have a fav point.
