Day #304 – Bolting Round Ulting Again

Trad: 7
Walked: 2.9 miles

When Peverel Blue’s series, Bolting Round Ulting first came out, I decided to do them piecemeal as fillers to keep my geostreak going. But since starting with the first few, plenty more local caches have been published closer to home.

Today I decided to go and collect the remaining 7 trads and their information so I could calculate where the big bonus was hiding.

No. 5 was a nice Letterbox pot, I even remembered to take along my own Smiley Stamp to mark up the logbook.

After a slightly wrong detour for No. 9, I eventually got the this view of the lake (and found the cache!). One more to collect on the way back to the car and I called it a day there. The calculation for the bonus is a bit involved and I thought it was better to do it at home so I didn’t get it wrong!

It’s good to have most of this series put to bed now, it was a lovely little walk.
