Lonscale Fell and Skiddaw Little Man

We walked from Lyzzick Hall Hotel (248263) east along the road through Millbeck and Applethwaite and up to the car park at the base of the 'tourist route' to Skiddaw. The intention was to get up to Skiddaw and descend by Carl Side to Millbeck, but cloud on Skiddaw meant we had to content ourselves with the Little Man. On the way up we took in Lonscale Fell (not an exciting summit...). It's an easy walk over Jenkin Hill to Skiddaw Little Man. Here we made the decision to retrace our steps rather than do the full round in the mist, as we've already done the other peaks. Still, at least it was dry in what must be one of the wettest Junes on record :clap:
As we descended, the sun came out again and we enjoyed the views south over Derwentwater and some of our favourite fells.
