After Sale fell we drove round to the other side of the mountain to Ling fell. Parked on the mountain and straight up we we. Was cold but very sunny and perfect conditions. Not much to say about the route was just straight up. Was nice when all 3 of us sat watching the busy world go by taking about achieving our goals. At the top is a nice trig which we all stood on and sat on at some point. Went the same way back to the car. Only took 10mins from the top to the car.Scotty 2 Hotty24/02/2018
