A sunny, but rather chilly and breezy morning as I arrived in the Howgills for an early start and an ascent of Carlin Gill. The scramble up the side of The Spout was excellent, easier than I expected and over far too quickly. I cut the walk short at Breaks Head as I found all enthusiasm disappear – not sure why, but my heart wasn’t in it, despite the superb blue skies.
