|Distance:||11 miles||Ascent:||1,840 feet|
|Weather:||Intermittent sun with a cool breeze in exposed sections|
|Comments:||A pleasant day with a good amount of sunshine making it very warm when sheltered from the cold wind on the ridge. The Langdale Pikes were easy to identify but other Lake District summits were more difficult to identify. With frequent 360 degree views it was a good day to identify hills, including Ingleborough.|
