10.2 miles, 2,941 feet, 3 hours 12 minutes: Ambleside - Rydal Park - Low Sweden Bridge - rock step - High Sweden Bridge - Scandale - Red Screes - south ridge - Golden Rule Pub - Ambleside. Overcast, with the clouds just obscuring some of the high tops. Misty below that. A few minutes of drizzle; even fewer minutes of sunshine. A moderately strong wind from the west - and it is still cold. Terrain wet/saturated/slippery. Very few walkers about; 4 runners seen.

Scandale, or the one and a half miles of it above High Sweden Bridge, is another ascent where I used to be able to run the whole way. And, as a different run, from Ambleside to High Sweden Bridge. Those were the days.
