We decided Bank Holiday Monday would be the day, cos the met office (who are of course absolutely always right), said it would be absolutely stunningly gorgeous from about 1 o'clock onwards, so we didn't hurry and arrived at Threlkeld about midday, turning into the tiny village and heading for the car park.
Generally Hall's Fell Ridge is a bit exposed and scrambly.
Peter found it easy and exhilarating. I found it fun, but occasionally scary.In fact, one small section was too exposed and scary for me to tackle, and we had to backtrack and make our way along the side. But then, making our way along the side and up was also scary, cos the side is steep. But you avoid thinking about it, and keep making your way up and along.
We spent a while up there, on the top of the world. Glorious in the sunshine, we could see everywhere laid out before us. We sat for a time, soaking it all up.
What a fantastic experience it must be to fly that way. And how lovely for us to see them.
