WOs 86-91; Bs 73-78. A good clear day with the sun coming through p.m. Drove to Shap summit and did a mixture of W's Wasdale and Crookdale horseshoes. Good path out over Whatshaw Common, Little Yarlside and Great Yarlside. The crossing of Crookdale was not as boggy as feared and a reasonable ascent to Lord's Seat with a good path over Robin Hood. Nasty bog to the foot of High House Bank, then good path along the ridge. Very unpleasant descent through tussocks and bog to the Hause Foot lane, then old road back to the summit. A good day.BURGESS09/08/2017
