Latrigg for lunch

To finish the day we headed back towards Keswick, but stopped on our way out to the M6 to tackle the mighty slopes of Latrigg and find a nice view for our lunch.  Quite possibly the shortest walk up a Wainwright ever.  We could have made it more challenging by starting further away, but made up for it a little by walking the slightly longer way back.

Difficulty: 1
Walkers: Tim, Caroline, Isabelle (10), Grace (8), Evie (5), Poppy (2 1/2)
12:43, 0.0km 0h00 0m, Start (295)
13:06, 0.7km 0h22 65m, Latrigg (367)
14:04, 2.0km 1h20 97m, End (295)

Evie not impressed that she had to walk at all before getting her lunch.

Poppy was unstoppable.

Outrageously good view given the pitiful walk to get here.

Final tally for the week was 15 peaks, 8 visible from lunch today. Current lifetime totals - myself and Caroline 48, Isabelle & Grace: 22, Evie: 17, Poppy: 2. Evie wins the age adjusted total with some superb climbing this week.
