What is a Wainwright?
 
 
A Wainwright is a mountain in the Lake District that the British fell walker, author and artist Alfred Wainwright describes in one of his seven walking journals of the Lake District.
There are 214 peaks to climb in total; which I first completed in 2010, each one is unique and amazing in it’s own way. Wainwright was born in Blackburn, Lancashire and had a love for the hills from an early age, although his first Lake District peak wasn’t until 1930 aged 23 where he climbed Orrest Head in Windermere this is where he got his first glimpse of the beautiful Lake District fells and so the Wainwright’s were created. He created his books between 1955-1966 where his meticulous eye for detail and skilled drawing talents helped him slowly draw the artwork for his books that have now become a collection every serious hill walker should own.

We’ll leave you with the below quote from Mr. Wainwright taken from one of his guides. In it he describes the summit of Scafell Pike and it’s popularity. I just love this quote:
 
"In summertime, the cairn often becomes over-run with tourists, and a seeker after solitary contemplation may then be recommended to go across to the south peak, where after enjoying the splendid view of Eskdale, he can observe the visitors to the summit from this distance. He may find himself wondering what impulse had driven these good folk to leave the comforts of the valley and make the weary ascent to this inhospitable place.
 
Why does a man climb mountains? Why has he forced his tired and sweating body up here when he might instead have been sitting at his ease in a deckchair at the seaside, looking at girls in bikinis, or fast asleep, or sucking ice-cream, according to his fancy. On the face of it the thing doesn't make sense.
 
Yet more and more people are turning to the hills; they find something in these wild places that can be found nowhere else. It may be solace for some, satisfaction for others: the joy of exercising muscles that modern ways of living have cramped, perhaps; or a balm for jangled nerves in the solitude and silence of the peaks; or escape from the clamor and tumult of everyday existence. It may have something to do with man's subconscious search for beauty, growing keener as so much in the world grows uglier. It may be a need to re-adjust his sights, to get out of his narrow groove and climb above it to see wider horizons and truer perspectives. In a few cases, it may even be a curiosity inspired by A Wainwright's Pictorial Guides. Or it may be, and for most walkers it will be, quite simply, a deep love of the hills, a love that has grown over the years, whatever motive first took them there: a feeling that these hills are friends, tried and trusted friends, always there when needed.
 
It is a question every man must answer for himself."
