There was rain everywhere this morning with only the odd bright patch shining through. One of those bright patches was Helm Crag so I opted for a walk up to it from Helmside, a short and steep ascent that one was. I managed to climb The Howitzer too, the Wainwright summit that Wainwright famously never reached as it was too tricky. Even Casper had a good go at it today though!
