[weather] Sunny and hot becoming cloudier later on with a cold northerly breeze. - Lying unsuspected below the summit of Stony Cove Pike are the crags of Threshwaite Cove. There is a very steep and rocky descent here which me and Henry took slowly and with some care. Having descended all that way to Threshwaite Mouth we then had to scramble all the way back up to reach the 14 foot high summit beacon of Thornthwaite Crag. This is another fine top with wonderful views southwards.
