Walk up from the parking area with my naughty daughters. It was cool and windy but we dodged the showers for the most part,. We climbed up the steep way. Summit Trig falling to bits. Views were superb across to the high hills of the Lakes to the Dales and Morecambe Bay. We saw a Sparrowhawk being mobbed by some Crows. Time taken 44 minutes for 1.3 miles.isabelle24/08/2018
