2006 09 04Crinkle Crags, Great Knott and Cold Pike from Wrynose Pass.

The weather forecast promised sunny periods but I got precious few. The highest tops were in cloud most of the day. I was disappointed to get no decent views at all from Crinkle Crags even though I hung about for quite a while hoping that the clouds would clear. Nevertheless the rain kept off and I got some good views at last from the summit of Cold Pike before dropping back down to Wrynose Pass.
