From Angletarn Pikes, this was the view across to Place Fell, doesn't look too bad, does it?

Well the wind increased and the rain was heavy, but we battled to the top.  This video shows Poppy wisely crouching down if she feels herself getting blown over.

On the way back home, out of the worst of the wind and rain, we look a little damp.
