Wythop valley scene

Scene at the eastern end of the valley. The snowy slopes behind are the northern end of Skiddaw.

What turned out in the end to be the only day in February I could walk dawned reasonably bright and clear, so I managed to get out and complete walk 106 despite having something of a cold. Thus, I sought a straightforward walk, and certainly nothing that involved tramping around in the snow again.

Hence walk 106: the same territory as walk 17, which I did (with the wife) back in June 2010. Ling Fell and Sale Fell were the two summits bagged, both from volume 6, the first two from that book bagged a second time, and numbers 25 and 26 of the second round. I hope you enjoy reading about them…
