[with] Sue and Christine [weather] Very good weather for walking, dry and clear, good visibility. - Oh dear! Scramble up Wetherlam Edge was a bit tricky, made more difficult due to snow underfoot and unclear route to top.......but we did it! Prison Band looked more challenging than it was - a pleasant surprise after Wetherlam Edge!

Some off to Coniston from Swirl Hawse, we some how missed plane debris on Great Carrs! Lost time on descent of Prison Band and detour off path to Black Sails. Also, after rocky scramble decent.....ended up on the minor track to the mines, and boy was it steep and never ending. We were in dismay at another climb to get back over to Wet Side. Late for booked meal, but fantastic circuit
