Sale Fell

Friday broke and the weather wasn’t overly kind, the cloud was down again however it said brighter things would be with the Western Lakes by midday. I headed out after lunch for something easy, something new and preferably something not boggy (after all the rain we’d had!). I decided on a little North Western fell which was a simple 10 minute drive from Dean (where I was staying) and required very little effort. In fact I’d say this is the easiest Wainwright I have climbed to date.
