Walk: Fell Foot, Parlick, Nick's Chair, Fair Snape Fell, Nick's Chair, flanks of Parlick, Parlick, Fell Foot
Start Point: Fell Foot Grid Reference: SD 601 442 
Distance: 5 miles Ascent: 1,400 feet
Time: 2 hours
Weather: Overcast
Comments: Quite a lot of activity on Parlick today with hang gliders taking off from Nick's Chair and gliders swooping silently (almost) through the skies. On the return from Fair Snape Fell I explored a path on the eastern flanks of Parlick so that I could climb it again from the side - though not from the bottom this time.

Look carefully to the right of the orange canopy to find the glider . . .

which passes between the two hang gliders . . .
