Distance: 4.50 miles
Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Dull, gloomy, wet and windy.
We reached the summit at 12:20 and got no views! By the time we had returned to Keswick, changed out of our wet clothes and had something to eat at Fishers the rain had stopped and the cloud had lifted. A short drive to the Skiddaw carpark nearly at the top of Latrigg allowed me to dash to the summit again, take some photos of the view and return to the car all in under 20 minutes before returning to Keswick to do the Christmas shopping.
