Altura Trail, Whinlatter
The consequences of an off on bits of Lonscale Fell could be interesting, as there is a steep, long drop on one side.
Why don’t you do the blue at Whinlatter as a warm-up on Friday, followed by the south loop if he’s going OK, then the north loop, then Lonscale if you think he’s up to it?Posted 4 years ago
What’s the level like?
4 of us are going up this weekend and whilst three of us are good on a bike and won’t have a problem the 4th guy is a complete novice.Posted 4 years ago
We are doing Longscal Fell on friday which I’m also a little concerned about.
We took him for a ride around the chilterns, very tame, and he squeled like a girl on some bits of it!
Should be funny but do you think it’s dangerous?
I’ve seen a video of longscal and it looked pretty exposed but to be honest he’ll probably just get off and walk if it gets to tough (those rocky bits) so he should be ok I think.Posted 4 years ago
Maybe turn him into a man, or possibly just frighten him from doing anything adventourous again. It’s make or brake time!mikewsmithSubscriber
Don’t bomb it down Latrigg (the bit in the woods under Lonscale) unless it’s dark it’s normally full of families.
Someone went off the exposed bit one day after overtaking Fabien Barrel, they survived, I know a one who has straightlined one of the gullys down there on purpose 🙂
Whinlatter, chill and enjoy it. Purple route is best 🙂 look at the map and do Blue, then south red then north red best way to warm up for it all.Posted 4 years ago
