My fourth Wainwright round of Pike O'Blisco and Lingmoor Fell from the ODG. More challenging and interesting were diversions en route to Wrynose Fell (Long Crag), Blake Rigg, Kettle Crag, Side Pike, and Oakhowe Crag along the way. Quite rough and often pathless ground. So only 16 km with 1100m ascent, but it still took me 8 hours to complete. A lovely sunny morning with stunning views of Bowfell et al, but a chill with low cloud and scattered showers came in during the afternoon.silverwolf_alan05/11/2023
Parked at NT ODG. Nuttal walk 5.3. Circuit around Pike o'Blisco, Great Knott, Cold Pike, Cold Pike W Top, Cold Pike Far W Top, Little Stand, Crinkle Crags S Top, Crinkle Crags Long Top, Shelter Crags, Shelter Crags N Top and White Stones just off the Band. Repeat visit for some of these from student days Breezy and in/out of cloud all day but enjoyable return visit to Langdale after many years. Solorichard6925/09/2023
