TR - Scafell Pike & Lingmell
« on: 20:25:42, 18/02/19 »
Finally managed to get a winter outing in the bag - England's highest. Fantastically windy and brutally cold - a thoroughly enjoyable day

Great dramatic pics  O0
Over hill, over dale. Thorough brush, thorough brier....

Such great photos Dave, I'm going to have a look at your TR/blog to get the full effect  O0
Well done - looks a tremendous day.

Great photos Dave, looked an amazing day mate. Iíll have a read of your blog later when Iíve got more time  O0


Edit
Excellent read that Dave, I can imagine that day was blumin cold in those winds.
I was up there myself a couple of months ago, no snow, but like you, walking in those conditions around there isnít easy, so well done.  O0

Walking is the worldís oldest exercise and todayís modern medicine.

It was a superb day - the only thing the photos don't show was the wind - pretty tough work for an hour or so between Calf Cove and Lingmell Col

A superb walk and photos. Those conditions make some of the images look almost monochrome, which I find enhances the feeling of bleak cold.

Hi Dave,

That really is a fantastic TR.  The pics/ views are simply stunning and most certainly worth the struggle through the strong wind and cold.

Cheers
Lee
