Nick Dobson walked up on July 14th, 2018 [from/via/route] Seathwaite Farm [with] Margaret & Ralph [weather] bright and sunny in the main, but misty and low cloud on the top. - Once again the plan was to continue onto Bowfell, but once again conditions prevailed, as we approached Esk Hause, Esk Pike had disappeared from view. We continued to the top, but decided against continuing to Bowfell with very little visibility, instead taking in Seathwaite Fell on the way back down. On reaching Esk Hause we turned to see Esk Pike in brilliant sunshine with no cloud in view.
