Coniston Old Man

Probably the first time ever that Tex has planned one of our walks and I didn't want to disappoint by saying that I'd walked this only a few months earlier on my own. It was still a grand walk and even more enjoyable for selecting a better route up to Wetherlam, avoiding the boggy section in Red Dell which I chose last time.
