2004 06 17 - Yewbarrow with Paul D.

The day started with a heavy and prolonged downpour but thankfully we got through the walk without any further rainfall. The scramble up past Rib Bell and the scramble down to Dore Head were both difficult enough without the added problems that more rain would have brought. I lost a pair of reading glasses whilst negotiating Stirrup Crag on my backside but we managed to finish the walk in time to catch a couple of pints and most of the England v Switzerland game at the Strands Hotel in Nether Wasdale.
