Clear summit and with Peggy the dogWMW3123/11/2019
Wow, what weather; One of the clearest days in the Lakes ever. Hard snow on the tops, which was in the main lovely to walk on. Made our way up via brownsey Gill to Pike o Blisco where we managed to meet with dad who was making his way to Coniston. From there we headed to Cold Pike, across the Middle towards crinkle crabs via the bad step. Lunch at the top, then Baz and I nipped over to Bowfell and grabbed that, whilst the other returned to old dungeon gill via the band. Baz and I followed after them as too much ice at the top to risk the climbers traverse. Great day walking with Baz, Lyndon, Andy, Stu, Dan unfortunately Matt had to duck out last minute due to a dodgy tummy!Jim Baz18/11/2019
