The snow is probably deeper on the eastern fells but I can't be bothered with the longer drive. So I end up at Seathwaite with no particular objective. As I leave the farm yard Allen Crags appear. The crag below the skyline, looks like there's a diagonal rake below it.
And it's a lot more interesting than that terrible man made cobbley path that they seem to go in for in the Lakes.
Must have mis heard the forecast as I thought it said sunny frosty start. It's cloudy and windy and I have to put my buff over my head to stop the hat blowing away.
The weather clears a little to reveal Great Gable and Sprinkling Tarn.
View down the other side to Langdale Pikes where a friend from work, Dave McGregor was walking today.
There's a shower coming in as I head down. By not crossing over to the main path and by zig zagging through the crags I get down to Low How and manage to avoid the cobbley path for quite a distance.
