Sunday Walk Report 2nd November 2014

The first Sunday walk of the new membership year received the magnifcent attendance of one member in addition to the leader.

The itinerary followed little used paths up onto the South Ennerdale ridge, taking in Haycock, Scoat Fell, Pillar and White Pike, descending by another little used path diagonally down through the forest to minimise the distance on the valley gravel road.  Conditions were very cold in the strong wind on the tops, a few spots of rain and hail just around the summit region of Pillar, otherwise very pleasant conditions. On return to the car park, a bold and cheeky robin decided to investigate the inside of the leader's car and was lucky to be spotted and encouraged to jump ship before being accidentally relocated to a new home in Egremont.
