After endless days of sunshine and warm
weather, this morning was dull and threatened rain constantly. It was
good to be back on the high fells and I made it back before the rain
eventually came. I ended up doing a few direct routes to places rather
than following the paths today for a bit of a change.

Threading a way through the hags, this must be the

Phew, that was a steep climb to Rest Dodd.
The wind has whipped up here now as well and there are
spots of rain - time to escape.
