|Summit cairn on Silver How|
Silver How is always a pleasing little hill, not to demanding but possessed of lots of nooks and crannies. I climbed it today from Chapel Stile, using the path beside Walthwaite Gill to reach the ridge before crossing over to the summit via lots of humps and bumps. I lunched beside the cairn with Grasmere and Rydal Water forming the foreground to the view. Behind were the Langdale Pikes, which lunch consumed I headed towards. At the group of reedy tarns I traversed downwards, eventually the ground steepens and I reached the valley road at Harry Place Farm. I wanted to have a look at the rock-art on the "Langdale Boulders," only rediscovered in 1999! The road was very quiet today as I ambled back to the car. The weather had behaved its self only raining once I got back.
