|Distance:||9.7 miles||Ascent:||2,200 feet|
|Weather:||Mainly overcast, but no rain|
|Comments:||It was a very pleasant surprise that Gary & Robina joined us for the day. Our group of 21 set off along the Great Langdale Beck before making our way through the woods and quarry and the climb onto Lingmoor Fell. At the western end the group split with some carrying on to tackle the ‘squeeze’ and the rest took the path down to the cattle grid, where we regrouped. The route then took us past Blea Tarn, Fell Foot and Slater Bridge, before returning to Elterwater via Little Langdale and Wilsons Place|
