Plover Hill Day 2

Another cold walk, with the wind at our backs for most of the way, decided to skip the ascent of PYG on the basis that the steep descent path would be very icy and we had no spikes. Chris still managed to slip over though and cut his knee. Long descent along the road was rewarded by a second breakfast in the Pen-y-Ghent cafe
