The object of this route is to tick off the 10 tops that can be seen from Abraham's cafe on the upper floor of the George Fisher outdoor shop in Keswick. Starting and finishing at the shop doors the circuit involves ascending 12,000 feet and covering some 30 miles of mountain terrain. The tops can be completed in any order via any route that respects private land and adheres to rights-of-way and access land.  Similarly the route may be completed in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction. There is no time limit although to finish in daylight is an obvious incentive . Successful completions can be logged on the Leader Board on the George Fisher website subject to the supply of a GPX file. A certificate and badge are also awarded to all successful contenders while a facebook page gives all the latest news, photos and discussion. Full details are available via the links below.   


The object is to visit the ten tops listed below starting and finishing at George Fisher's Shop in Keswick, grid reference NY 266 237. Use in conjunction with OS map OL4 The English - Lakes North-western area (1:25,000)
