More cloud but no rain at least for our walk this morning up to Black Combe, that great hulk of fell at the south-western tip of the Lake District. It is a relatively easy ascent following Whitecombe Beck all the way to Whitecombe Head, the sting in the tail being the very steep descent to get back to the valley.
