Waem and cloudy here in Lancs Les. He is currently about to start his descent off High Seat Ridge and will be heading for Tommy Road on his way to Tebay and the Lakes. This is much more determined attempt from Mick although some of his previous attempts were affected by atrocious weather.Forecast for up here today is around 27 deg and 32 for tomorrow, not ideal walking temps, lets hope there is a mild breeze too.

Mick is presently approaching the steep drop off into Longsleddale, and around 10 mile or so from Waterhead. He should arrive there between 11pm and Midnight. he's going very well especially considering how warm it has been today, with the hottest day expected tomorrow. Come on Mick last day nearly there!

It must have been a very hard day, so hot. Even in my garden I had to sit down now and again as it was so hot. The last stretch to Waterhead will be very testing as the weather tomorrow looks very hot again with little wind. I hope he makes it to Waterhead tonight although I think it will be after midnight as he must be knackered!

Yeah, it appears that he has called it enough for today and is stopping over in Kentmere. These things are so hard when conditions go against you. It will no doubt now go into the 5th day, but I doubt Mick will be over concerned about that, he will know what he is achieving and what he has experienced in the process, outstanding!

Well done Mick I see that you set off again this morning just after 7 o'clock. I must admit that I thought that the heat and humidity of yesterday may have forced you out with the same but hotter due today.

HJe looks to be rallying today. A later start but going well again, Mick looks like he will get very close today and possibly only a few hours away from St Bees when he stops, or may even press on to finish in the early hours. No stopping him now, superb effort.
