thank you for the advise everyone. We are still trying to deside where the best places to get some shut eye are. We change our mind everyday
Ignore any negative comments, we are a friendly helpful lot on here (mostly) feel free to discuss your plans and seek advise, however far ahead of your actual crossing.
In my case going West to East on my 5 day schedule I camped as follows:-
1st night... Just beyond Ruthwaite Lodge in Grisedale.
2nd .. A couple of miles beyong Sunbiggin tarn next to
a wall, but before Bents Farm.
3rd night was B&B in Richmond after a bad very wet day and
nowhere to pitch at Midnight.
4th night was an emegency 90 minutes in my tent just beyond Round Hill on the Rosedale Railway after Claybank Top but before Blowarth Crossing. Actually Blowarth Crossing is a very good spot for a wild camp although exposed if conditions are bad.
Have a good one.
