I've been very busy of late and it's been
a little while since I was out on the fells but I managed to make it up
onto Lingmoor Fell today. The weather was mixed and it felt a little
fresh up there but it was good to be out in the fresh air with only my
thoughts for company (plus Dougal and Casper of course!).

The wall leads to Side Pike which looks pretty well
impenetrable from below...

get through. Lay off the pies before you go for this one.
