Lonscale again

Ryan running up to the summit of Lonscale Fell

This was a shortish run as I had to be home for about 1pm.  Usual route up Spooneygreen Lane, up the Skiddaw path, branching off to follow the fence along Whit beck to the col before climbing to the top.  I managed to run up Spooneygreen Lane again which I was happy about.  The snow was a bit deeper further up, making it hard to keep going.  Plenty of snow on the Skiddaw path and a ridiculous amount on the track off up the beck.  It got a bit better when we reached the fence but we decided to forgo my favourite descent over Burnt Horse thinking that the snow would be very deep over there.  We came off the front (south side) of Lonscale Fell and picked up the Cumbria Way Bridleway for a run around the Glenderaterra valley.  We came back through the Blencathra Centre and along the trails through Brundholme Woods.  Ten and a bit miles all in.
