After seeing a documentary showcasing some of the amazing landscape of the Northern Fells in the Lake District I resolved to climb Blencathra, a mountain also known as the Saddleback. And climb it I did, it was great walk and I was happy to cross another Wainwright off my list.
And then I got home and I found this picture on my laptop
and this was a photo of my recent climb up Blencarthra
Without knowing, I’d climbed the exact same mountain. What was disappointing to me was not that I’d climbed a mountain that I’d already summit-ed but the fact that I”d forgotten that I had ever climbed Blencartha, a whole mountain was completely absent from my memory.
