Return by route of ascent

I hate those words.

How many times have you read that in a guide book? It makes me suspiscious of the author. They’re either free of the inconvenience of imagination, or only interested in ticking the top and getting home as quickly as possible. As guide books are many people’s main point of reference (especially in unfamiliar areas, a visit to the Lakes without a book would cause me no end of upset), how many trips are missing out some of the good stuff?

  1. Aye, Gulvain is another. A wonderful corrie and glens to explore beyond the summit, a riverside walk back and all for a little extra effort.
