From Powter How with DW on a whhite cloud day with a biting 20mph Westerly. A round of Barf (didn't like Slape Crag). Lord's Seat, Broom Fell (The Half shelter thankfully took 90% of the wind) and Ullister Hill. Descending eventually to the car after some minor forest disorientation til I could see LS and Barf in the same view. Never been to Whinlatter, but got a bit close today LOL!nukeboy126/03/2019
