Dockray, the Dodds, Sticks Pass and Glencoyne

An early start to get up to Dockray for to join fellow Rucksackers for a walk out from Dockray.  Setting off into the greyness which turned into a whiteout on Great Dodd.  First snow of the season!  Finally dropping down to Sticks Pass with views of Ullswater in sunshine.  Excellent outing before heading for the Shap Wells Hotel for the Annual Dinner.  Great that our Principal speaker and guest for the weekend was able to join us on the walk.  The Ramsay Round is the Classic Scottish 24 hour challenge first completed by Charlie on 9th July 1978, seventy five hardy beasts have completed it since.
