Wainwrights

Almost anyone who’s walked in the Lake District knows about the Wainwrights.  I discovered them in 2005 after my experience on Scafell Pike (I can’t remember exactly how), and I’d soon bought copies of all 7 volumes of the Pictorial Guides.  By the time my next trip came around in October 2005 I was fully aware of which hills were Wainwrights and remember counting them off as we climbed them on those two wet and windy days.  Then I knocked off a good number in 5 days in 2006 from which point it became difficult to remember them.  So I started keeping a proper record and I date my peakbagging focus from that point.

The Wainwrights are my primary peak bagging list and, so far, is the only list that I have actually firmly resolved to complete.  The only reason for this is my love of the Lake District, and I mean to do a lot more than just climb all of the Wainwrights.  I try not to be obsessive about the list, although there have been moments when I’ve become temporarily blinded by the “need” to bag a summit, rather than concentrate on enjoying the walk.  But this blindness has largely slipped away now, especially as I look for ways to spin the whole process out so that I can enjoy it for as long as possible.  Now I’ve reached a point where I take the view that my objective is gaining as intimate and complete an understanding of the Lake District as I can, and the list is part of the process of organising myself.

If I take the boring route the first time I bag a fell (often because it lies on an easy ridge route from another fell, for instance), then I often go back and do the fell later using the better routes – a good example being Pavey Ark which I bagged from behind in June 2006 on my Langdale Pikes 8 summit day, but which I returned to in August 2010 and climbed via Jack’s Rake.
