today's walk: Binsey for Jonathan to climb his 600th Marilyn and so enter the Marilyn Hall of Fame


leaving the gate at the foot of Binsey


heading up the fell with a glimpse of Bassenthwaite Lake in the distance


the path is very wet after this morning's torrential rain


zooming back down to Overwater with another party following us up


blue sky over Scotland from near the top


approaching the top in vicious wind with the back of Skiddaw fells behind


Jonathan approaches his 600th Marilyn in severely windy conditions


on top celebrating his entry into the Marilyn Hall of Fame


very windy up at the ancient cairn on the summit


looking back to the summit from the slightly sheltered eastern side


celebrations just east of the summit


leaving the summit area with now blue sky over Scotland


descending with Skiddaw to the right still partially in cloud


Overwater below from the very wet track


another shot towards cloud capped Skiddaw


looking west to Bass Lake
