We set of from the Wasdale National trust car park, pay and display £4.50, with all the waterproofs on! At this point the weather was uncertain and forecast suggested it may clear for lunch. How wrong was it today? We will see...
Over the foot bridge we went and up the long slog towards Brown Tongue. The views made up for it.
Looking back at Wast Water
Time for a drink
Working our way through Hollow Stones
Another day... Looking towards Mickledore col.
They just love scrambling
Lingmell col in the foreground with the Great Gable looking tempting for another day.
On the final push above Pikes Crag
Unfortunately this is when the weather really turned...
Our big boy determined to get to the summit!
Here come the girls. "The views are going to be amazing" I don't think they believe me!
Bode at the summit
Trig point photo plus hale! Accordingly it was snowing on Ben Nevis when this shot was taken.
We didn't stay long, we took some shelter and put on some extra layers and headed back towards Lingmell col. Once we descended towards Hollow Stones the weather started to improve and the layers came off again. By the time we reached the car park the views back to Scafell Pike were amazing. Anyone having an early evening summit would have been in for a treat.
2 down and the big one to go!
Very tired children...
The things we will do for some peace and quiet!
