|Comments:||I chose this walk to try and find a path off Moughton Scars that I had failed to find previously. After further investigation at home I can see where I went wrong and should be able to find it next time. While it was a pleasant day it was more overcast than expected and the wond on Moughton Scars was very cold.|
When Ingleborough came into sight it looked like there was still some snow up there . . .
and a closer look confirmed this
From Long Scar the sun tries to reach Ingleborough . . .
while Pen-y-Ghent, in the opposite direction, is in complete shade
Cloud descends on Igleborough as we reach the far end of Moghton Scars
