2008 09 19 - Loft Crag and Harrison Stickle.

Although I've been on the Langdale Pikes a number of times over the years I'd never actually been to the summit of Loft Crag, so that was my goal today. Weather forecasts were a little contradictory and although I expected some low clouds I also expected them to lift as the day progressed. Unfortunately my hopes were disappointed and low clouds persisted all day. I got no decent views at all as can be seen from the photographs.
