Seathwaite, New Year 2015

Author: Andrew Williamson

Trip Summary

The New Year trip (5–9 January) followed recent tradition and returned to Seathwaite's wonderful High House. We were treated to rather a mix of weather, although there was an almost complete lack of snow. Between us, we managed to explore a number of the hills around the bunkhouse over the trip, including Scafell Pike, the Gables, Kirk Fell, Castle Crag and some of the Central Fells, in addition to the more distant peaks of the Coledale Horseshoe. We battled with the weather on a couple of days, especially when it threatened to cut us off at High House by flooding the approach road; thankfully, this was largely to no avail. Many members regard this trip as the beacon of CUHWC’s evening socialising and this year's trip was no exception to such a title. Overall, it set the bar pretty highly for another year of memories with CUHWC. Further details of the trip, including the threatening 'floods', can be found in the Trip Book.
