Scafell Pike

Had a nice short break (Friday night, Saturday and came back early this morning) away with Mike + Cate, who I've not seen for a while. Met some of their friends too, who seem really nice.
Saturday we walked up Scafell Pike. None of us were really prepared, and, in fact, Paul left his boots at the cottage, and had to go back and get them. Andy also insisted on carrying his 2.5kg tripod up there too.
It was a steep walk, and Amy, Tamsin and myself soon struck out in front.
We got to the top in about 4.5hours, and then spent about 3hours getting back again. The others took a bit longer.
Both Amy and I are absolutely knackered today.
