Souther Fell and Bowscale Fell

This weeks tromp was from Mungrisdale… a round of Souther Fell and Bowscale Fell. The clouds were heavy and soon emptied themselves onto us as we made the steep climb up Souther Fell. There was a cold brisk breeze making it feel more February than July. Is this the end of summer??

From the col between Bannerdale crags and blencathra an easy ascent can be made of Bowscale fell. The showers came and went but the wind got worse. We were glad to have it at our backs

We were soon on the way down after passing a very pointy cairn…
A very steep descent met with disaster at the bottom: the pub was closed. It was only 10.04. What was going on??

All that effort; no reward. Bugger. I hate it when that happens
