More Wainwrights to tick in round 2. Liz wanted some fresh air so we headed for Skiddaw, but took in Lonscale Fell…

And then on to the windy summit of Skiddaw where we didn’t stay too long.

Before descending to Carl Side, not before seeing some antics of poorly kitted walkers (no axes/poles etc) teetering along icy and snowy paths (see the girl in the pale blue jacket).

At Carl Side the views were stunning.

And then it was back to to the road, where we spotted a few antipodean visitors.
