The date was 15 September 2012, the place was Coniston in the Lake District and the people were massively hungover. We planned to tick another hill off the Trail 1oo in the shape of Coniston Old Man. Since mqhiker has already written a belter of a trip report – here’s our day in photos.
It wasn’t a long walk, but it was the best hangover cure out there. Although we lost one man and brought an injured one home it was quite a nice wander that was quite steep in places and really interesting due to the large amount of industrial scarring. Definitely recommended if you’re in the area.
