Wild Boar Fell

Out with Bill today, his suggestion was to go up Wild Boar Fell. It's a while since I'd been on Wild Boar.....infact last time was with Ian for a wild camp at Sand Tarn. Middle of the morning saw us parked near Pendragon Castle...the sun was beating down!

Pendragon Castle with Wild Boar in the far distance.

Having a breather on Little Fell a bump on the North ridge of Wild Boar Fell

A large party (30at least!!) caught up with us as we lingered taking in the view. Not being the most sociable person when out on the hill, I dropped down to look at these cairns overlooking the Mallerstang valley

Looking down on the North ridge from "The Nab"

It was a damp walk across the plateau to the Trig, the Three Peaks visible beyond

Damper still! as we crossed the plateau again to the Eastern escarpment.
This small dub of water took my eye tho.

Bill looking down Yoadcomb Scar into Mallerstang

The stone men above High White Scar, again the Three Peaks in the distance.

Retracing our steps over "The Nab" we descended to the valley floor and made our way back to Pendragon along little used paths and what seemed like a thousand stiles and gates!!
A great day, although it was very hot.
