This was a bigger walk than what I usually attempt. To do the round properly I should have gone up Yewbarrow but by the time I got there I was half dead and didn't feel like I was in the right condition to attempt an awkward scramble.

There's some work in that lot Andy and some nice shots along the way...always best to avoid a scramble if you don't feel up to it at the time, better that than landing in a pile of meat and bone at the bottom :wink:
