The weather wasn't great so opted to bag a couple of small Wainwrights, starting from Latrigg carpark we walked around the path to the top and straight back down the hill to the bottom, stopping for a coffee by the wall, the weather broke so we decided we would do Lonscale Fell instead of getting back in the car to drive to another. We walked up towards Skiddaw, (missing the path across the fell continuing up towards Little Man before realising) doubling back to join the path we headed up to the top, not sure which summit was the actual top, we took in both, before the wind and rain picked up driving straight at us. Descending zig zagging down the fell to join the path at the bottom, leading across the beck towards the car park.
