Langdale Pikes

The Carrs then back via Little Langdale – perfect weather but cold

Saturday was not so good – the cloud was down and it was drizzling. Lynn, Neil and I set off from Threlkeld towards Skiddaw House, crossed the river about 1k before Skiddaw House and followed the track to Latrigg then back to Threlkeld for a beer in the Sally.

Sunday was a perfect day especially in the western part of the Lakes. 6 of us left Buttermere village and headed north alongthe side of Crummock Water, before turning south up Scale Beck past Scale Force and onto Red Pike.
