|The Hawell monument beside the path shortly after you leave the car park.|
The Helvellyn range behind...not much snow cover as you can see.
|It was a struggle all the way up the path to Skiddaw Lower Man. The wind was ferocious and bitterly cold, MWIS was forecasting -13 windchill....it felt every bit of it.|
I had to lie down to take this picture!
|Looking North from the summit of Lonscale Fell to Great Calva and Knott.|
Almost all downhill from here....
|....back to the col then down beside Whit Beck. Again another thread of a path..great!|
I'm often told "you won't see much running rather than walking". But I can't agree...this was a fleeting scene with the sun lighting up Latrigg. Just this would have made the day worthwhile...of course there were another 2 hills bagged.
An easy jog/run back to the car. The Strava track/stats of my trip can be found here should anyone wish to check it out.
