I added Walla Crag onto a walk across the ridge to Bleaberry Fell from Armboth. I had a lot of walking in my legs so I went down to Walla Crag & back up to Bleaberry before descending to the river to cross & go up Raven Crag. Unfortunately I slipped crossing the river & broke my arm, spoiling what had been a brilliant day's walking. (I still went up Raven Crag though.)
