Walk: Patterdale, Boredale Hause, Place Fell, Sleet Fell, Martindale, Hallin Fell, Ullswater, Patterdale
Start Point: Patterdale car park Grid Ref: NY 395 159
Distance:  10.5 miles Ascent:  3,500 feet
Weather: Swirling mist with some brighter periods
Accompanied by:

Phil and Keith, lead by me

Comments: Started the walk late as we were waiting for Marie, Ray and John L. We found out later that they had a car accident on the way but no-one was hurt. The views were intermittent as the mist swirled around but we did manage to get some good photos. The path down from Hallin Fell was a little difficult to find but most of the walk was easy to follow.
