2007 01 24 - Little Hart Crag

I parked at Cow Bridge and set off along Brothers Water towards Caiston Beck which tumbles down between High Hartsop Dodd and Middle Dodd. The path follows the course of the beck steadily towards Scandale Pass. It was cold with much ice and a little snow underfoot. The clouds were fairly high but became more intrusive as I reached the pass. The wind also increased markedly and whipped up swirls of snow as as I gained height. There was a fairly clear view in the direction of Ambleside but the tops of Red Screes and Dove Crag were hidden in mist. The blustery summit of Little Hart Crag was also in cloud and too cold a place to linger long. As I dropped a mere 50 feet or so the wind eased considerably and the summit was suddenly clear of cloud. I wandered down over High Hartsop Dodd back towards Cow Bridge, warming up as I went.
