As usual there follows photos of the day.....
|Looking back down Shoulthwaite Gill towards the Naddle valley|
|Once I reached Mere Gill I climbed out of Shoulthwaite Gill, rather steep...gave me a chance to look back East to Castle Crag hillfort and Benn cloaked in conifers.|
|Once the angle eased the hard going commenced.|
I contemplated...Would I remain dryshod?...Would I retain my Sanity?
Nahh...That's long been Lost!!
|Here on the fist of today's Synge's "Bleaberry Fell South East Top", the sun made a brief appearance. Bleaberry Fell is in the background.|
|From the same point looking Northeast..ish, Blencathra and Clough Head in the background|
High Rigg down below.
|To get to my next unclimbed hill I really had to visit Bleaberry Fell, no great hardship. The Synge I'd climbed earlier is the high point to the left of the cairn.|
|The next hill on the agenda Dodd Crag seen here in the centre of the image.|
|The view from the "top" of Dodd Crag, sadly the sun had disappeared. From here it looked a fair way to Pike, my last hill for the day.|
