Second walk of the day was up to Grisedale Pike but the real reason for the walk was to pick up a straggling Birkett, Hobcarton End. It was a steep ascent from the car park in Whinlatter Forest but at least it was starting from 300m which made it a bit easier to bear. The cloud seemed to gather on this walk and the clear skies of earlier were gone.
