A chance to go walking
in the Lake District on a classic horseshoe route with a famous climber is on offer to those who snap up the available places quickly.
On May 14th, Chris Bonington will lead a group of 25 people on the Grisedale Horseshoe, which he describes as "better than Everest" and offering "some of the most lovely views you will get anywhere in the world".
The walk will be one of three he is leading to raise funds for the Campaign for National Parks, which is seeking to ensure the proposed extensions of the boundaries of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales national parks go ahead.
Beginning and ending at Derwent Bank on the shores of Derwent Water, the walk is a nine-mile route.
Grisedale Pike is one of a number of Wainwrights surrounding the valley of Coledale, which lies above the village of Braithwaite.
The 2,595 ft summit stands alongside others such as Whiteside, Hobcarton Pike, Grasmoor and Crag Hill.
