Scrambling in the Lakes on a Bank Holiday
Today Emma and I decided to avoid the Bank Holiday crowds and headed up the East Ridges of Nethermost Pike above Patterdale. It was never difficult and I feel it would be great under full winter conditions but it was worth it keeping away from the 'ant highway' on Striding Edge. From the summit we headed down to Grisedale Tarn and back to Patterdale. Later on we had a BBQ on the beach of Ullswater and then canoed down the lake and camped for the night.
