Sounds so inoffensive doesn’t it? Glenridding Dodd. With much complaining and cussing, I somehow managed to reach level ground after the initial part of the ascent without toppling backwards down the grassy bank. The Dodd itself was (almost) worth it.

With the confidence of the first fell of the day under our belts, it was a pleasant walk interspersed with a few challenging scrambles to Sheffield Pike. We found a circular route back to Glenridding and then on to our hotel for a bath followed by dinner.
