|Start Point:||Tilberthwaite||Grid Reference:||NY 306 010|
|Distance:||10.5 miles||Ascent:||3,600 feet|
|Weather:||Mist, more mist and heavy rain|
Our walk started with very low mist all around us with views coming and going. The mist persisted all morning and becoming dense on the tops. By early afternoon the mist had become heavy rain and the route was amended to escape the damp conditions.From Tilberthwaite we climbed to the col between Betsy Crag and Wetherlam for the Greenburn valley before once again climbing up to Wet Side Edge with Wryness pass on our right and Greenburn valley on our left.
All smiles and ready for the off but also kitted out for the wet conditions to come
