Postcard from Skiddaw, Feb 2012

Postcard of my pictures of a circuit of England's fourth highest peak, Skiddaw (931 m). Up from Millbeck, on a sparkling winter's morning; Carlside Tarn was frozen hard and the path upwards was slippery with a sharp wind from the west. My thermometer read -5°C on the summit ridge.

Skiddaw Man and Little Skiddaw Man were busy and the view over towards Lonscale Fell was cracking. The Lakeland peaks were all clear but I couldn't make out Snaefell on the Isle of Man.

Down to Latrigg saddle and then a back route home.
