Uldale Head and Simon's Seat

Wow! Oww, that one hurt. Biggest height gain of the year and only had intermittent views until nearly finished. Warm for most of the day, very wet underfoot and low cloud, but no rain. The final two or three hills were really hard work and I had to slow to a crawl to finish them.
