Notes: A mostly sleepless night due to the sound of the rain, but a good test of the waterproof-ness of my shelter. I was away without breakfast, hoping to catch the cafe in Horton. It rained all the way into the village, not cold, but steady and drenching and I formed a pool beneath my table as I sat in the shelter of the Old Barn in Malham. The rest of the day was mostly dry, the odd light shower only. By the climb up Fountains Fell I was tired and after the climb up PYG I was knackered. As I reached that last summit the heavens opened again and it got quite chilly as a strong wind accompanied it. Rather than camp at Hull Pot as I'd planned I decided to head for the station in Horton and catch the 19:06 train back to my car and a warm bed instead. The section between Horton and Cam End can be done in a day walk, as and when. I have the survey method down pat now and the next sections will follow as soon as possible.
