Weather: a fine dry day with cloud above the summits but the easterly wind was bitterly cold
Where: the Lake District - starting & finishing from Seathwaite (approx 11 miles & 3,300' ascent)
Dropping down through the gap the wind chill became more notoceable and the first glimpse of Angle Tarn showed its surface to be disturbed to the extent that the occasional white top could be seen. It was only at this point that I decided to head on past Sprinkling Tarn & take in Sty Head Tarn also to add a round of Tarns into the day. The climb back up to Esk Hause, although obvious from the map surprised me a little - it was quite impressive to ascend back back up from this side under the gaze of Allen Crags.
