Setting off early from our Langdale base camp we made our way to Little town to park up and set off on our version of the Newlands round missing Catbells off for now. Feeling drained from yesterday’s big walk and still feeling the effects of the illness I had most of the week I found this extremely difficult. Making it to the ridge between Catbells and Maiden Moor for about 7:30 to watch the sun rise over Derwent water was well worth the effort. We chilled a bit here before heading up to the summit of Maiden. Very poor summit it actually took us ages to find it but the views made up for this on both sides of the mountain.Scotty 2 Hotty22/06/2018
