A slightly chaotic start as leg 6 appeared from nowhere while I was still drinking my hot chocolate. Rory could make 20 cuppas in the time it takes my kettle to make 1.
A hasty departure then the long hot climb up Dow Crag. We took a good line, got the psychological lift of ticking our first Wainwright, then settled down for the remainder. Some nice steady ridge running on gorgeous evening sunshine with the occassional wisp of cloud and the alarming strains of Alan singing something about mists and swirls over Grey Friar to the tune of Mull of Kintyre.
Wetherlam was further than it looked then night fell, and a fiddly slow descent at first, before heading south and much faster brakes-off running, with a pause for Alan to fall and give his ankle a theatrical twist (6/10), before the welcome sight of the lights waiting for us and the beginning of the night shift.
Nether wasdale to hardknott pass. 3000m ascent, 38km, 8hours.

Big day out in cloudless skies. Ticked off some big mountains including scafell, scafell pike, great end and bowfell. We had a great day moving well over tough terrain. Managed to stay on route finding some nice little trods around the minor prominences that wainright felt unworthy of including in his list! Great fun.
