Loughrigg Fell 8th June

We ended up with a day trip to the Lakes and climbed this fell. It turns out that despite its compact size it is a Wainwright. We had fortuitously parked the car in a place with good access to the fell. It’s a short walk up with great views across to Grasmere but also fab all round views. We picked a small one because the weather had just been awful all the way across to the Lakes and we managed to get to the top without getting wet. It only started up again for the long haul as we descended. All very atmospheric and it’s pronounced Luff-rigg.

Oh that’s where the chocolate went!
