My tiny tent survived the wet night in Ennerdale. At least it was not raining as I packed up. As I had camped in pub grounds they let me drape my tent over some chairs to dry it out as I had my breakfast there. Excellent food at the Fox and Hounds, highly recommended.
The route along the south bank of Ennerdale Water was slow going. It was a long stretch of scrambling over rocks with many of the paths having turned to streams of water.
This is one view along Ennerdale water with the footpath rising on the right of the photo.
Then the long climb lay ahead.
You should be able to see in the photo how far I had climbed by then. It was not until I had got to the top that I could start running.
No room at Barrowdale youth hostel so I am camping in their grounds, and the forecast for tonight is HAIL storms.
