Short stay in the lakes at the start of the Easter hols, the never ending Winter of 2024 limited activity somewhat but I managed to do these lesser known fells using the route on this site (although looks like I've just missed the top of Sour Howes) :cry:! Cool and windy but not too boggy on top, although managed to give the new shoes the ultimate test when I went ankle deep descending Sallows, pleased to report feet stayed dry. Only saw 3 or 4 people all afternoon but did see some jets for once. Teenager was grumpy.

Grumpy teenager ascending Sour Howes and ruining the view of Windermere :-D

Me and better half on Sallows
