The best thing about reaching the top after a very steep climb, (apart from the views), was that it was all downhill from here to Grasmere!
At this point Gary stopped for a lunch break whilst Liz & Roger steamed on as they were heading for Patterdale - 17 miles in total, Madness!, (in Gary's opinion). The path down to Grasmere was very boggy and at times disappeared. Gary headed on towards Grasmere picking his way across boulders and streams.

Gary's quote of the day "Such a steep climb". Shortest day tomorrow, Gary tells me he may even wear his shorts!
