Start time 18:17. I always have a breather at the half-way point up the steps. It's been a pleasant enough day and more are promised by the weatherman.

Smart Dressed Man

Sharp Dressed Man

Clean shirt, new shoes, does he know where he's going? This gentleman, from Bristol, is up here working and decided to make an evening ascent of Pendle Hill. I think if you're going up Scafell Pike in the pouring rain, then certain clothes are essential. For a Pendle walk on a calm, dry evening, dress just as you like.

At the summit I met three runners, the smart dressed man caught up as I had some top time. The young lass with the labrador, who I saw last week was back on top at the same time, it got quite crowded.
