Base Brown - 21 April

Despite the forecast for a dry day and glimpses of sunshine when we arrived in Borrowdale rain drifted into the valley as we set out for Base Brown. The climb by the side of Sour Milk Gill became a climb into the clouds and a little rain. The latter didn't last but was quickly replaced by the cold wind which has become so familiar of late.

We reached in the summit in zero visibility and followed the path from Green Gable back to the top of Sour Milk Gill, dropping below the clouds as we did so. Only three more "Third Round Wainwrights" outstanding now.
