The initial climb up to Stybarrow Dodd was pretty steep and followed a meandering rocky path winding up the hill. The weather wasnt that great with mist swirling all around. Little patches of sunlight came and went over towards Blencathra but for us it was all a bit bleak.
So hurrah Chris and your 150th Wainwright - Congrats xx
The conditions were not ideal for picture taking but Watsons's Dodd was a nice hill to climb, a rolling and undulating path to the summit stretched the legs and although the mist was still swirling around every now and again we caught a glimpse of faraway peaks with the sun peeking through the clouds giving them a dappled effect.
After Watson's Dodd it was onto Great Dodd and again it was a good walk but nothing spectacular to write home about. Dodds are all a bit boring really. Big mounds of hill with very little character at all. No rocky outcrops, no tricky terrain to conquer, just big grassy lumps.
Our timing was going well at it was just about 2pm when we started to make our way down from Great Dodd. The mist was still swirling but as we decended it got a good bit clearer.
