A grey but clear day around Troutbeck. Cold wind but dry.

Ill Bell ridge ahead - I'm always struck by this ridge when I see it. Probably because it's the first proper mountains you come to when driving in from the East.

I wasn't going to go up the Tongue but it's so easy from this side (albeit boggy) it felt a shame not to
