Walk Description & Map

Map showing route as described in the Route Information section

Not good weather for this walk. Cloud base about 500m with fairly constant rain from mid morning onwards. Wind speed on the tops was high making it too difficult to follow our planned route from Wetherlam onto the Old Man, this has happened to me now more than once around this area, it always seems easier to go over Wetherlam and down Wetherlam Edge than to head towards the Old Man.
