- Black Combe route-finding in low cloud
Hi, I was working in the Whicham Valley last year and kept taking my bike with me, with the intention of riding Black Combe. The couple of months I was there I got to ride it once! Like you’ve heard, the cloud seems to come half way down the fells and even though I’ve got a GPS, I still didn’t fancy it. On a bleak day it looks more like you would be riding into something off the Lord of the Rings.Posted 6 years ago
As you probably know it is quite a short ride and if I ever go back, will do it both ways.
Have you thought of doing Broughton Moor/Seathwaite?
Thinking of heading up over Black Combe this weekend but the weather is looking rather grim. That doesn’t matter, of course, but I have read that route-finding can be problematic in heavy / low cloud on the summit with regards to finding your way back down the correct path.
How bad is it exactly?Posted 6 years ago
