A weekend meet using Eskdale Youth Hostel at the head of Eskdale. There are many attractive mountain and low level walks that can be done directly from the hostel door without the need to drive anywhere including Scafell and Harter Fell.
Eskdale Hostel is one of the English hostels currently up for sale, so this may be the last opportunity we have to stay here.
Photographs are from past meets in this location, including Scafell from the Eskdale GOC meet in December 2015 (the day after storm Desmond).
People intending to take part in this event should read GOC's document Safety on the Hills.
