|Parking Spot for Buckbarrow|
Our final day in Wasdale and so we focussed on another linear walk to take in the three Wainwrights of Buckbarrow, Seatallan and Middle Fell. After a cordial conversation with a local farmer out on his quad bike at our parking spot near Harrow Head we set out on our route to where Geoff's car was parked at Netherbeck Bridge.

We reached Seatallan LDW-093 (which also qualifies for SOTA) just under an hour after leaving Buckbarrow and from here the ham radio session was more successful. The first contact was with M0BLF/P on Coniston Old Man and we followed that with another summit to summit QSO with my good friend Iain MM3WJZ/P who was on Corserine SS-033 in Scotland. Contacts were also enjoyed into Wales, the Isle of Man and the usual suspects to the south Bob G6ODU and Brian G4ZRP were also logged, who we had been unable to hear from the lower summit of Buckbarrow.
