Weather: Both Met Office and MWIS predict a temperature inversion, with summits warmer than the valleys. MWIS predicts mainly clear and sunny conditions at height, Met Office sunny spells. Both predict fog and poor visibility in valleys/lower slopes.
Therefore I’m playing it safe and choosing a route that I should/might be able to locate in a mist – Hall’s Fell Ridge on Blencathra, with the option to extend to include Sharp Edge depending on time and conditions.
Meet at 9.30 at the large parking area just past the Blencathra Centre (Blease Fell Road, past the school in Threlkeld and along minor road. Beware! Immediately past the Blencathra Centre the road deteriorates into a massive pothole, but the parking area is on your right.)
