From Wrynose summitAnduril11/10/2013
Beautiful weather hike with Ian and Louise. Route from Wrynose Bottom to Skelwith Bridge, using two cars, over 11.5 miles and 6 summits:- Little Carrs - Hell Gill Pike - Grey Friar - Great Carrs - Swirl How - Black Fell. Wonderful clear view of Scafell range from Grey Friar, and early evening from Black Fell looking back up Langdales. Interesting but sad story of the plane crash on Great Carrs. Path down from Swirl Hause into Greenburn very indistinct (lost it several times!). Had late lunch in Three Shires Inn, Little Langdale, before the Black Fell section.mavero1028/09/2013
