2008 08 23 - Ullock Pike, Long Side, Carl Side and Skiddaw with Joe.

We parked on the Orthwaite Road just above High Side. Considering all the rain we had experienced in the run up to this trip we were fortunate to enjoy good weather for this walk. Although there were plenty of clouds about all day and some coldish winds on Skiddaw we had a good deal of sunshine and not a drop of rain all day. Although my legs were tired and aching as we descended through the heather off Broad Crag Joe was still running
