The weather was supposed to brighten up later, but I guess you’ve got to get out whilst you can and it didn’t look so good when I set off in pouring rain. I made this walk up as I went along, I didn’t really know where I was heading apart from Alcock Tarn but when I looked up to Heron Pike it seemed so close I decided to go for it. The weather was constantly changing again today and as I climbed the rain soon turned to snow backed by a strong wind.
