Family walk up a cracking little fell near to our base in Braithwaite. The views down to Derwent Water were spectacular, especially on the way down, and it was a fine way to spend a couple of hours. Topped off with a nice pint in the pub to finish.

Family photo, say cheese!

The boys hug it out on the summit! Wainwright number 3 for them and 6 for me.
