Paul this is you,re reply on 24/10/2004.I hope it wasnt too isolated for you



If you mean, and I think you do, the the B5289, I can confirm there are some "cracking views". I haven't camped there but seen some vans there. It is very isolated though, but the free museum/shop/slate quarry at the top of Honister Pass is quite interesting.

At the top of the pass, parking space on either side.
We stayed the night. Wet and windy but quite an adventure.:cool:

Just heard on the radio (26/10/08) that hundreds of fell runners are missing overnight due to bad weather and some are even sheltered in the slate quarry at the top of the pass.

Agreed;), Monkeynut, as with all extreme sports there is an element of risk involved and competitors are well aware of this. I have utmost respect for these brave people. I heard on the news that organisers were accusing the emergency services of over reacting.

They are allways over reacting , ive allways feeled safe running on the fells, its running on the road scares the crap out of me I dont even cycle on the road now ,I know its simply down to me on the fells and not some nutter in a car or van
