What a fantastic day, great to walk a bit off the beaten track climbing birkhouse moor. Had so much fun scrambling over striding edge. Great views from helvellyn and great to achieve it. Nice pace, enjoyed the extra peak Capsty cam. Loved following the stream down and refilling our water bottles, so nice and fresh. Really enjoyed walking with a group, nice to meet people and a bit of camaraderie.

Great guide and lexy the dog was a good second guide!

I did a guided walk with Matt - the Coledale Horseshoe - and it was an excellent day. Matt is a great guide, varying the pace to suit, and very good company. I felt entirely safe in his hands and that meant I could really enjoy the day and not have to worry about navigation. This was a great way to get out on the fells, take in the amazing scenery and know you were in experienced hands. This is the second guided walk I've done with Matt (the first was a fantastic day climbing Scafell Pike) and I'd have no hesitation in booking with him again.

The long day out in question was a classic fell race route called the "Old County Tops"

This is a 37 mile hike or run over approx. 11,000 feet of climb in a single day taking in the highest peaks in what was Cumberland (Scafell Pike), Westmorland (Helvellyn) and Lancashire (Old Man of Coniston) before all these peaks became part of today's Cumbria.

Matt organized the day superbly in terms of route choice and ensured that supplies of food and drink were placed at strategic intervals around the route to ensure that we would complete the challenge.

In the event we ran the majority of the challenge in under 12 hours with Matt completing his first ultra marathon in the process

A fabulous day out in the mountains and very ably led by Matt who ensured that a tough running challenge went very smoothly.

Thanks very much Matt and already looking forward to the next challenge....
