Stone Arthur - Great Rigg - Fairfield - Hart Crag - Dove Crag - High Pike - Low Pike
Plans went awry. Headed up Stone Arthur and the clag descended. Visibility was very poor. The intention was to get to Great Rigg and head back towards Rydal.
On and on I climbed through the gloom. I met some voices coming from my left discussing direction. On reaching the summit I had a feeling that I had overshot and arrived at Fairfield. A group at the top confirmed this. No worry I would head back the way I came and pick up Heron Pike and Nab Scar.
Oh no. The price for not having the map for the place I hadn't intended to reach. As I quickly realised I was heading for Hart Crag. Ah well a virgin summit is another bagged so another 4 chalked off the list.
A longer walk than intended deserved a swift ale before heading off down the motorway.
