2nd top of 19 on an epic 4th leg of my improvised Bob Graham's round from the New Dungeon Ghyll hotel in Langdale, climbing Kettle crag and then climbing through rocky ground to loop back onto the footpath before it climbs steeply through scrambly rocky steps. Steep ascent but enjoyable. Explored both North and South cairns.Dazingdale09/06/2016
