Yet again Sweep and I met Graham and Flash with the weather not looking too promising. As we began to ascend the drizzle turned to rain and the cloud began to drop....
We decided to do the W ascent up to Hart Side following Glencoyne Beck. We went a bit too far towards the nort-west from Birkett Fell so we had to follow the Dowthwaitehead path south to get back on route.... Wet and cold we gave up on the idea of going back over Brown Hills.
