As usual here's a few photos from the day....
|This is a favourite path of mine, although steep it seems to gain height quickly and provides amazing views|
|Like this one back towards Derwentwater, a snow shower passing over Walla Crag & Bleaberry Fell|
|The path crosses below the dark crag. I stopped here got the axe out and put my Microspikes on|
|The summit of Nitting Haws, first of today's Synge's. Helvellyn is in the distance.|
|Another view of the summit rocks of Nitting Haws, Stonethwaite snaking away into the distance.|
|The snow covered rocks on the top of Low Scawdel looking North.|
Skiddaw and Blencathra hanging onto low cloud.
|Cloud was skimming the top of Dale Head, but in the distance the sun was catching Base Brown.|
|Having floundered down to the col, I picked up the fence which leads unerringly to this point...the summit of High Scawdel. This was my last summit of the day.|
|I turned to retrace my route beside the fence.|
|A winter wonderland!|
|I left the fence and walked down beside Rigghead Quarries, the snow thinned out as I descended.|
|I crossed Tongue Gill on the bridleway which would lead me back to Grange.|
|Stopping briefly to take this picture below Castle Crag.|
Another great day, I enjoyed today in spite of the flogging through deep snow and vegetation!!
