Well, Langdale to Scafell Pike was interesting. We set off at half nine and made our way up to Bow Fell. This was bloody steep (20%) and as we climbed, we could see The Weather forming below. As we went up and up, it got wetter and wetter. Visibility was about 20 metres, and the wind was picking up. We made our way over to Elk Pike. We could not see where we were going by this point, and we relying on the cairns to guide us, and a compass bearing. My clothes were now soaked through and we'd done maybe a fifth of the distance. We got to the top and took shelter for some food. It was at this point we should have called it a day, but cold, wet and making poor choices we pushed on.

The going was ridiculous, we were literrally stepping from boulder to boulder, in a cloud with high winds. The rest is a miserable blur but the ascent of Scafell was awful. I was thinking we had made some very poor choices and it could get serious, quickly. Once we got there. We couldn't see more than 10m by this point. At the top, we replanned a route down and to walk around the valley to get some shelter and set off. Because of cold, wet, I don't know what happened but we walked down the wrong side of the mountain and not wanting to go back up, had to think. Option one was around and back over Elk Pike, option two was GTFO and pub and cab. Option 2 was taken. Two hours later we were in a pub, my knees are shot, and the cab back was only £100. Lots of lessons, there..

11 miles. 8 hours.

Langdale NT campsite is very giod, as is the NT down the road from it.

I was sent this just now

Quote:
For a full on mountain day however nothing can compare with an ascent from Langdale.

This approach is a long day and takes in some the truly impressive sights. You need to pick a good clear day with stable weather and steal yourself for some hard work particularly if you choose to add on the ascent of Scafell. The rewards are glorious. Not only do you take in the remote part of Langdale but you also get lofty views down into Langstrath, Borrowdale, Eskdale and Wasdale. The crowning glory is the traverse of the main Scafell's ridge, the highest in England, which is stunning. It's that perfect combination of rock architecture, lofty positions and dramatic distant views and best of all because it's an out and back route you get to walk it twice.
You return to Langdale by the same route. Most of the way back is pretty clear but many people make the mistake of coming off the summit of Scafell Pike in the wrong direction. The clutter of rocks and cairns can be very misleading even in clear conditions so to make sure you take the right route take a compass bearing off the summit

Worst view I've had in the lakes was at the top of The Old Man of Coniston. It was like having a sheet of white paper in front of us with gravel at our feet.

Also, hiw did the boulder fields form at the top of the hills? Was it all one rock that got smashed up?

I remember being up there in winter when it closed in. Snow on the ground, it was exactly like being stood inside a table tennis ball, but bigger, windier and colder.

"Unspecified agents" is amusing me. Like militant faeries or something.

Weigh more now than I did 2 years ago prior to me loosing the best part of 3 stone :(

Got my shit together as was making excuses about being busy with a new baby etc, but if you don't make the change then you don't loose weight

So back doing steps and once I've done a couple of weeks of that then gym again

Also knocked booze on the head as even a couple of beers makes me lazy and not want go out.

Making sure I get out on a weekend first thing in the morning to get the bulk of 10,000 steps done

Did 27,000 steps yesterday and ache like fuck :)
