It started off really dull and it clouded over almost as soon as I set off from Great Langdale – but lo and behold, the sun came out and the skies soon became glorious blue. It really was great day on the fells, most of the walk was completed in shirt sleeves and even though it was icily cold, the sun really warmed it up. It was really quiet up there too and I only saw two other people – on the descent to Three Tarns.
