Castle Crag – 16 August

A wee hill we have only ever summited in pouring rain and low cloud (twice) we wanted to bag for our third round of Wainwrights was just perfect for Sunday morning. Not much of an outing but plans for the rest of the week dictated a short day and an early return home. The cloudless sky early in the morning promised a greatly improved day, a promise that was not to be fulfilled as cloud and eventually rain returned. Ah well, having been beaten to the summit by rain twice before we won this time.
