Whit Fell, last of the Lakes Marilyns

Summit Cairn, Whit Fell

       This was the last Marilyn left to "climb" in the lakes, it hadn't been left as the last for any particular reason, purely chance. Our route of ascent led us from the high point of the Corney Fell road following the wall north past Buckbarrow Crag and across the open fell to the gentle rise which brought us to the large cairn of Whit Fell. The summit cairn is huge, (there's lots of stones to build it!), there's also a trig, and the view extensive in all directions. Our path back to the car was much the same as our outward route, with the exception that I picked off the small top of Buckbarrow crag. The rain had been trying all the time we'd been out driven in on a cold easterly wind.
