The photos when examined closely are blurred due to the wind, still they're a record of the day....
|Looking back East along the main ridge...a good viewpoint for Elterwater.|
|A little further on and the view South to the Tilbirthwaite area|
|Summit almost in sight, the Harrison Stickle and the other Pikes shrouded in cloud.|
|The summit...the photo is unable to show the wind...I had to sit down, brace my arms and was still buffeted all over the place.|
|I usually descend along the ridge and Side Pike (seen here). But today, partly to get out of the wind and partly to enjoy the jog over easier ground I descended to Blea Tarn.|
|From Blea Tarn I crossed the road and walked down the zig-zags, then along the Cumbria Way and bridleways back beside the river to the car at Chapel Stile.|
