From a recommendation from Josh, we packed up camp, parked in Miterdale, and headed up Illgill Head and Whin Rigg. The wind was howling, and with the odd shower, wind chill on the summits was close to or below freezing. Spectacular views steeply down into Wasdale.
I dropped Charlotte off at Oxenholme, however as her train was over 30mins late, and the next train was running later and later as well, it became clear that for her to make her flight at Manchester I would have to drive to the airport. With only 45mins before the flight departed, we pulled into terminal 1 and she whizzed through check in and made it! Phew!
