Planning for overnight to Crinkle Crags

I’m planning on walking up to Crinkle Crags and overnighting up there. This will be my first overnight on a fell but not my first night outdoors so I’m not worried.

Thought about taking a tent but have decided on using a basha and bivi bag instead. This might be foolish but only time will tell.  The basha and bivi bag is lighter quite a bit lighter then the tent and I will be using walking poles anyway which I can use to set up the basha.

My kit list is as follows:
Sleeping and shelter

  • Basha – This also called a tarp but as I’m using an ex army one may as well call it what they do.
  • Bivi bag
  • 4 season down sleeping bag
  • Self inflating mat 

Cooking, water and food

  • Jetboil Flash stove
  • Source 3l Wide pac.
  • Drinksafe Systems  3-1 Aquaguard which is used inline with the hydration pack
  • 24hr MOD ration pack – This should do as only going to be out for 24 hours.


  • Lowe Alpine Sting rucksack
  • Walking poles
  • Map + compass
  • Mobile phone – Taking as camera rather than as a phone.
  • Waterproof coat and trousers. 
  • Warm hat + gloves
  • Spare socks.
  • Headtorch
  • First Aid Kit


  • Altberg boots
  • Walking socks
  • Craghopper trousers
  • Base layer
  • Fleece jumper

Think this about it, need to lay it all out and confirm.
