Charlie Housley bagged on April 14th, 2013 [from/via/route] Common Lane and then through the woods approaching from the rear of the fell. [with] Solo. [weather] Better than it was first thing this morning. - Intended to walk the Langdales today but upon arriving at the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel it was obvious I wasn`t going up there today. Decided to start on the outlying fells so I thought it would be appropriate to do this one first, after all, it was the inspiration for all my visits to the Lake District. Stunning views, easy to see why he was inspired.
