Barf, from Lord’s Seat

Friday 2nd October 2020, 10.55am (day 3,326)

The Lake District mountain that is Barf has a very silly name, but it is a rugged little beast and has a great view. Its summit has featured before, as some eight and a half years ago I was up there with the couple who’d brought their grandson’s Action Man along for the ride. With a weather forecast that is significantly deteriorating, I made the most of a chance to rebag it (and its two neighbours, Lord’s Seat and Whinlatter) today as part of my ongoing second Wainwright round. I’ll work some other day…. OK? Wouldn’t you?

The summit of Barf

Thursday 1st March 2012, 2.00pm (day 189)

Summit of Barf, 1/3/12With no computer at the moment it’s difficult to work properly so I went on a walk, which I enjoyed despite cloudy weather. 160 Lakeland fells done now – 54 to go (see the other blog for details).

Barf was today’s highlight. That really is the name of this mountain, by the way (apparently it is a version of a word that means ‘a low hill’). While on the summit, this couple placed Action Man here on the cairn, to take a photo of it ‘for our grandson’, Nice idea! So I stole it. The idea, that is, not the Action Man.
