2006 11 17 - Gray Crag.

I started out from Hartsop. It was wet (I mean lashing it down) and blustery on the climb up and cold with low clouds on the tops. The views were generally poor and the summit largely uninteresting because of this. I hung around the summit cairn for a while hoping that the shifting clouds would lift a little but to no avail. High Street and all the other tops remained hidden and so I decided to retrace my footsteps and descended by the way I'd come, back down towards the Filter House. As I might have anticipated the weather brightened up considerably as I drove home and there was even a little sunshine.
