A trip to Wasdale Head on a windy and misty day - firstly to do Lingmell which Wendy needs.

Years since I've been up it from Wasdale so a nice change - but the high winds putting me off extending the route to Scafell Pike.

With plenty of time left before checking into the hotel, I dropped Wendy off at a farm shop for a brew and took on Latterbarrow - which I thought was an Outlying Fell but turns out to just be a Tump.

Oh well....woodland paths and then a bit of a bash through the plantations to get to the top.
