From the summit of Fellbarrow we made our way through lots of little hills that scattered the summit and made our way to Low Fell.,on the way after following the sheep and Myla had a mountain dump Crummock water became visable and looked breath-taking! made the last steep section before summiting and what a gorgeous summit made even better by a Brocken Spectre which I predicted because of the conditions.. from here we made our way back gently down the easy paths back to Thackthwaite to end another phenomenal day on paradise on earth.Scotty 2 Hotty20/01/2018
