Parking at Peter House Farm, the plan was a quick ascent up Bakestall, Skiddaw and a run down the Ullock Pike Ridge, met a bloke called Ian from Frodsham Cheshire at the carpark and ascended Bakestall via Birkett Edge with him, it was his 210th Wainwright, and altho never he had never heard of The Society, hopefully he could be a new member!, do i get commision??, good luck tomorrow Ian on your final 4!, leaving Ian and following the fenceline up to Skiddaw in practically zero visibility, everything was great until, disaster!, i went over on my left ankle, for some reason i keep on going over on my left ankle never my right!, so a hobble down the scree to Carlside Tarn where i pumped myself full of paracetamol, the pain just didn't ease so it was a slow, slow hobble down the Ullock Pike Ridge to Barkbeth, then onto Melbecks and back to the car, currently at home with half a tin of freeze spray on my ankle, and to be honest its still throbbing!, i doubt I'll be out over the weekend! had a 13mile run planned weather was quite mild altho cloud on the summit made for zero visibility, a good day except for my painfull ankle!
Thanks Jenny, I'm gutted as today the weather is great, and I would have been out somewhere, just sitting with my foot up! All the times I've been up Skiddaw I've never seen cloud like it, it was 'hugging' and rolling down the fellside, it's a pity my crap photography doesn't do it justice!
