2020.02.26 - Wednesday - Leader Andrew Irwin
Part 1 - behind Patterdale Hotel ~ WSW to cross Hag Beck at NY390155, then ~WNW to NY387157, ~ SSW up to dry stone wall at NY385153, ~SW towards St Sunday Crag - due to very high winds threatening to blow us off the 'edge' (leading us up to the Crag itself) we turned back at NY376142 retracting our steps to the Hotel

Effect of wind  on you - 'Frequent buffeting across the hills, sudden squally gusts. Severe wind chill on higher terrain'.

after strong buffeting by the wind which was difficult to stand up in, we retraced our steps and went down


Part 2 - from Hotel follow A592 Road southward to NY398149 and follow Footpath passing Greenbank Farm / Lane Head  to Deepdale Hall then followed Deepdale Beck to NY377126 (time & weather limited distance and further exploration). Turned back and retraced steps.
