Unfortunately the weather was not the best today. Low cloud to start and throughout most of walk with the sun appearing towards the end of the walk. The temperature on Robinson and Hindsgarth was below zero with wind and a little hail!! Saw hardly anyone in the morning but as we walked from High Spy onwards there were many ramblers on the fells.
