On Wednesday night, my mate David (who has an excellent Facebook photo page here) invited me on a wild camp on Lingmell. It was a work night but I was keen. We agreed to take two cars, that way I could shoot off in the morning to get to work while David ambled around taking more photos.
It was a lovely warm evening and clear night. Warm again in the morning. Parking near the metal bridge, we headed over and straight up the nose of Lingmell.

|I took some refreshments - Scafell Blonde of course.|

We had a good walk around on Lingmell, visiting both cairns and taking plenty of pictures of the Scafells, Gables and others. The midges were getting a bit much so we headed back to our tents and had our beers.

I had a really good sleep. I woke up at about 6.30am and thought that I would get up quietly, pack up and head down without waking David. However, when I popped my head out of my tent, David was already up and taking his tent down.

|recognise any of these shadows looming over Wasdale?|
