31-07-2018 - Walla Crag with Alison, Joe, Ana and Jack.

 

Our walk today took us to Walla Crag from the Great Wood car park. My camera was malfunctioning on the way up so the photos of the ascent were sadly out of focus. The rest of the pics were taken with my  iphone. The descent via Cat Gill was very steep and dramatic - glad we didn't come up that way. It was cloudy again and a little windy on top but this was our second walk on consecutive days without rain which may be a record.
