This was another new summit. We parked in Patterdale (£5.00 for the days parking) and walked up to Place Fell, which took about 80 minutes with a few stops. Well defined path all the way to the summit, with 'steps' on the steepest parts of the path.
Difficult 2m path from Place Fell to the South, so only managed 8 QSOs, but thanks as always to those who came back to the calls. Next time I'll try with the 5 element yagi instead of the Slim Jim to see if that improves the takeoff.
