Peak number 2. After a pressing drive with 2 hours for Nahtan, 2 for Marcus, and the last 2 for me, we arrived at Wansdale at 4am, very soggy still and tired. Waking the 3 in the back 20mins before arrival was hillarious, and Chris panicked, and guzzled 4 protein bars for breakfast! Bar a small detour to the Scafell hotel, we were kindl;y given 2 bottles of water by an organised company group, and with headtorches on, started again. The light was fully up by 4.30, and the torches were soon away. Again, the terrible wether concluded no sunrise veiws, and we were soon in the clouds, yet not as wet as before. the Final slog up to the top of scafell with scree like rock all over was tough since we were climb almost 250m every km! Again, once at the top, we had enough time for a quick photo, relayer and start back down, this time less wet and less cold. Again, once below the clouds, they had lifted for a decent veiw, but the stairs down to Wansdale seemed to go on forever, legs and knees reByronHaywood06/07/2019

Morning start from Wasdale head - just me and the dog. Very quiet walk. Started ~7.15 and at summit before 10 (2.5hr ascent). Sun in eyes on way up but quite clear view and very few people on path. Summit freezing wind chill with light snow on ground. Didn't stay long. Descent hindered by dog's short legs! Took about 1.5hr. By the time we reached the base it was baking hot. Path up was chock full of people and dogs coming up.MysteriousSue04/05/2019
