27 03 2018 - Souther Fell, Bannerdale Crags and Bowscale Fell with Paul D


It was dull and overcast as we set off from the car park at the side of the river Glenderamackin in Mungrisdale. It started to rain as we began the climb onto Souther Fell and didn't relent until near the end of the walk. We battled our way onto Bannerdale Crags with the wind and rain in our faces. By the time we gained the summit of Bowscale Fell we had to contend with 40 mph winds and my face was starting to feel numb with cold. This was probably the worst walk, in terms of bad weather, that we've ever done - what fun!

Towards Mousthwaite col. Our route was to take us up the valley between Scales Fell and Bannerdale Crags
