Walk: Murton Pike, Murton Fell, High Cup Nick, Pennine Way

Distance: 13 miles Ascent: 2,600 feet
Time: 6.25 hours
Weather: Dry and sunny but very cold with strong winds on ridges
Comments:

Three walkers attended for this walk. Due to recent rain and snow the paths were very wet but other than that the conditions were very good except for Murton Pike where staying vertical proved a challenge. The consensus was that we had had a very enjoyable walk.
