One hand on the bar of the Borrowdale hostel. Standby. Go. Down to the river. Along the riverside trail. A mile and a half. Past the stepping stones at Rosthwaite. Past the stone bridge. Keep going. Left over the stile. Up. Up. Up. 600ft. Up the slate scree. Up the zig zags past the quarry. Up. On to the summit. Keep going. Touch the memorial on the top of the Castle Crag. Stop.
