I have a pass out for Saturday (on condition that I am back for tea) and am planning to attempt Cross Fell. Starting in Garrigill, travelling past Cross Fell on the south side and down into Blencarn, returning staring in Milburn, then heading down Trout Beck and into the South Tyne Valley and home.
The weather forecast is dry for the day (http://www.mountain-forecast.com/peaks/Cross-Fell/forecasts/885) but I am concerned that the rain over the last few days may have made it too wet (I note that there is more rain sue between now and Saturday. Should I plan to give it a go, or head off to a trail centre? Top tips gratefully received.
