Photo. Dereck at summit of Rossett Pike. Wainwright 203. Completed April 2022.
Congratulations to Dereck Tasker on completing the climbing of all of Alfred Wainwright’s Lakeland fells. Our former President and Honorary Life Member completed the last of the 214 climbs featured in Wainwright’s ‘Pictorial Guides’ on Saturday 20th August.
Bagging all the spectacular Lake District peaks has been a 5 year long endeavour for Dereck. He completed his marathon challenge with a walk up the 2,631 feet high Kirk Fell in Wasdale. He enjoyed perfect weather for his final walk, taking in the beautiful views over Great Gable and Scafell Pike, toasting his success with a beer at the summit.
Well done Dereck! What next?
