Kirk Fell/Middle Fell 13th September 2008

Route- Wasdale Head - Kirk Fell (AM) Greendale - Middle Fell (PM)

I had intended to walk the Mosedale horseshoe today but this was the scene that greeted me when I arrived at Wasdale Head.

Taking a gamble on the weather I set off up the steep front of Kirk Fell. But this is the last I saw of Wasdale.

There was no improvement conditions so I decided to abandon my walk but first I had to negotiate the tricky wet rocks on the steep descent to Black Sail pass.

Of course as soon as I returned to valley the weather picked up so after lunch I drove round to Greendale to tackle Middle Fell.

The sun is out now but the cloud still hangs around Yewbarrow.
