Promising early on but the cloud came in shortly before 11am. Not much wind.

I set off from Honister at 8am and was on the summit for 10am so I wandered over to the Westmorland Cairn for a view of Wasdale. I started my descent just after 11:30 having revisited the Westmorland Cairn and chatting to friends after the 'service'.
