From Wetherlam, back up the leg killer Prison band and back to the summit of Swirl How we made our way FINALLY to Great Carrs. Before the summit we stopped and looked around the plane crash memorial with was as fascinating as it was eerie and moving. From there the short walk to the summit. Much like Swirl How great views from the head of the valley down to Windermere and beyond. Absolutely brilliant day this one. just the short steep trip back to the car parked on Wynrose pass.Scotty 2 Hotty21/06/2018
