The forecast was not the best but the decision was to visit Swirl How via Little Carrs, Great Carrs, Swirl How and then Grey Friars.
At our age we use the car to gain height and so the old Toyota wheezed its way up the Wrynose Pass with sections of 25% incline until we parked not far from The Three Shire Stones.
We dressed in full wet weather gear as it was raining and a stiff breeze blowing. The tops were cloud covered but we are eternal optimists!
The path up has been engineered for a good section of the route and made for easy walking.
There were occasional views down Tilberthwaite but the wind kept us from wandering too near the edges.
At Great Carrs there was a memorial to a second world war plane crash which made for sad reading. Two of the Canadian training crew were only 19.
There were more gaps in the cloud when we reached the summit of Swirl How and we had a lunch break in a sheltered spot. My camera died here.
Grey Friars was our next objective before the downward route back to the car.
