Today was forecast to be the best of the week and dosed up on pain killers we headed off to park in Mungrisdale.
The walk along the road to spot height 235 was continually interrupted by numerous cars and 4x4,s containing lots of people wearing flat caps. When a trailer passed by carrying hounds we assumed that a hunt was to take place - hopefully legal.

Lunch was taken at the northern end of Bannerdale Crags before we skirted around to the cairn marking the top. Fine views of Blencathra opened up and the steep ascent of Sharp Edge - another time.
