Back Scar

I didn't expect this to be the last walk of the year, but the weather beyond this point during my free periods was pretty dreadful. A final couple of minor Dales Tops and a cold walk up to Back Scar, where I found a mini High Cup Nick in the shape of Great Scar. Lovely little walk to finish the year.
