I reached the summit of Cross Fell (which was cloud free by then) at 1315 - 5 hours after leaving Dufton.

5 hours after that I arrived at Alston YHA which is superbly situated right on the PW as you approach the village. I have never been so glad to see a YHA. The 2 or 3 miles coming down into Garrigill along a gravelly farm track are hell and then you've got another 5 miles to go to Alston!

The final 5 miles seem to be just one stile after another - as if you need that after 15 miles! Anyway I made it in one bit and lived to tell the tale.
