|Once the "ridge" was reached the great view over Grasmere and Rydal Water was revealed|
|Shortly after I was on the summit of Silver Howe, my first top of the day.|
|Next on the agenda Lang How. This is the view from the top looking up Langdale|
|This is the rounded top of Swinescar Pike, sunbeams lighting up the valley beyond|
|Next Little Castle How, more sunbeams :-)|
|Lots of up and down, twisting and turning over castle How (Raw Pike) and Great Castle How brought me to Blea Rigg seen here looking back East along the ridge|
|Further on the ridge you see Blea Tarn and its surrounding fells|
|Its a bit of a pull up to Sergeant Man, although there was welcome shelter from the stiff breeze.|
|Its only a short distance to Pavey Ark, here on the summit is the aerial view down to Blea Tarn.|
|I always think its rough ground between Pavey Ark and Harrison Stickle, maybe its just me?|
Great view of Pavey Ark mind!
|A proper drop and climb brings you to Pike O'Stickle, wild on top today. The last couple of tops of today's walk are long the ridge in the centre of the image.|
|Loft Crag with Harrison Stickle behind....and Thorn Crag below.|
|Its a steep descent down to the valley floor. I stopped here to eat what was left of my lunch and totted up the tops. 9 Wainwrights, 4 Birketts and 2 Synge's, quite happy with that.|
Of course I still had to walk back to the car in Chapel Stile, it's an easy walk along the valley bottom tho.
There's a Strava track here if anyone wants to see my route.
