Glenridding Dodd, Heron Pike & Sheffield Pike - up and back from Glenridding car park via The Rake. High temperatures made the steep climb even harder work, although it was still worth it for the stunning views from all three summits. Long break here to try and recover from the brutal heat of the ascent.wheresthepath25/06/2018
