Some gaps in the cloud. - No 65- 69 Wainwrights & will log all together. As the weather had remained warm there was no issue with bog! Just soft walking. A new path of huge stone blocks solved the issue around High Seat where the bog had obviously been boggiest. A good walk & five Wainwrights bagged.
