Boxing Day Walk: Dodd, Carl Side, Long Side and Ullock Pike

 Very windy today.  The plan was an eight mile walk over Dodd and then on to Skiddaw.  We decided to abandon Skiddaw due to extensive cloud and a high likelihood of being blown off the top.  Below is intended route (pale yellow) and actual route (red).  You can also see the four Wainwrights that were bagged. (click image to enlarge).
