|Looking back across Dubhow Crag to Sheffield Pike and the Dodds. Shortly after this I met the last people I saw until at Side Farm this morning.|
|I expected to see a few tents here at Angletarn but there was only 1..its there for the eagle eyed.|
|On towards Satura Crag, the first target of the day directly above the gateway Rest Dodd.|
|One of the lesser visited summits I'd say. Rest Dodd is a little bit off the main paths. A great view to the North, a little bit of Ullswater in the distance.|
|There's a fair bit of descent and re-ascent to The Knott...the boggy ground between the two meant the end of my dry feet as well. High Street (on the right) looked a lot more inviting in the evening sun than it had on Thursday.|
|Rampsgill Head was next, it didn't take long. I took a beeline from the Knott "helped" by a savage wind. this is the view South dominated by High Street (on the right) and Harter Fell (on the left)|
|There was no hanging about, I jogged across to Kidsty Pike. The sun had disappeared for a while and the temperature had dropped...out came the windshirt.|
The weather to the East looks better!
|If my feet were'nt wet before, they certainly were by the time I arrived here on Wether Hill.|
Is this the top? it's as close as makes any difference...any stones to make a cairn up here have no doubt sunk into the morass.
|I found a half decent spot, adjacent to the old shepherd huts. The Tramplite shelter looks quite well pitched in this image (not bad for a first attempt)...but the ground was tussocky so it was never going to be the best.|
|All packed up and underway for 6am #leavenotrace...you can't tell but my suitcase is actually inside my pack! 😉|
|Down the contouring path under Brownthwaite Crag. The early light just catching The Nab and the head of Bannerdale.|
|From Matindale I picked up the shore path back towards Patterdale. The sun only briefly made an appearance as here on the other side of the lake at Glencoynedale. Its a while since I've been on the shore path....quite a bit of up and down!|
|Almost at Patterdale, a good view of St Sunday Crag.|
|I walked on through Rooking, Crookabeck and Beckstones, then back across the valley to the car.|
A great little trip.
