from Cockley Beck with several RC. Mist on the tops, went left too soon and missed some Crinkles.Ellie's Hills23/11/2019
Wow, what weather; One of the clearest days in the Lakes ever. Hard snow on the tops, which was in the main lovely to walk on. Made our way up via brownsey Gill to Pike o Blisco where we managed to meet with dad who was making his way to Coniston. From there we headed to Cold Pike, across the Middle towards crinkle crabs via the bad step. Lunch at the top, then Baz and I nipped over to Bowfell and grabbed that, whilst the other returned to old dungeon gill via the band. Baz and I followed after them as too much ice at the top to risk the climbers traverse. Great day walking with Baz, Lyndon, Andy, Stu, Dan unfortunately Matt had to duck out last minute due to a dodgy tummy!Jim Baz18/11/2019

Damp and low cloud.No views.The hazards of using a touchscreen for navigation in wet weather! The screen went black just as we were in dense cloud and a bit disorientated. After a bit it started playing Spotify saved song, one of Alan's favourite Swedish ones. It cheered us up and we also found the way down. Later we realised the problem was moisture on the touchscreenAlanDStewart20/05/2017
Slept at yewbarrow before making an early start to Langdale. On the way I could hold a dump in any longer and went on a pile of gravel on someones drive way! feeling sore from the previous 2 days this was tough going. got to red tarn between Cold Pike and Pike O'Blisco for a rest before head straight up the face of cold pike. Met Bec at the top as I ended up on the wrong summit as it has 3 haha. great little mountain and detour from Crinkle crags with great views towards langdale valley and Hardknott.Scotty 2 Hotty07/05/2017
