Jonathan's looking well!

We were planning on some Sale Fell hills but changed our plans to go and bag the Wainwright summit of Whinlatter, also known as Brown How.  Whinlatter Top is actually a little bit higher than the Wainwright summit but Wainwright decided that Brown How would be his summit.

We set off from the visitors centre and climbed up part of the mountain bike track before taking a direct line to the summit ridge.  From here we made our way to Whinlatter Top and then the extra half mile or so to Brown How.  We retraced our track to the forest and then followed forest tracks, looping around to make up the distance to six miles.

My legs were tired so it was a slow pace but good to get out and get some more miles in.

I'm not sure either
