A relatively early start (for me) saw me at Buttermere for 10am, things were looking promising.
Enough of this preamble and blather lets get to the pictures....a great day:-)
|Its a bit of a drag up through Burtness Wood, it was good to emerge into the warmth of the morning sun. Pretty soon I was back in the shade of High Stile though.|
Buttermere was as you can see like a milpond!
|Over the lip of the corrie and the headwall behind Bleaberry Tarn reminded me of Sottish coires rather than the Lakes. Red Pike was looking.....Red!|
|Red Pike reflected in Bleaberry Tarn|
|The view looking Northwest from the summit of Red Pike. Crummock Water flanked by Grasmoor on the right and Melbreak on its left.|
|Northeast, again from Red Pike|
|Looking back towards Red Pike, Great Borne beyond from point 806 on High Stile. The two stretches of water are Ennerdale Lake on the left and Loweswater on the right.|
|View of the day....well I thought anyway!|
Looking down to Gatesgarth and Fleetwith Pike from above Grey Crag and Burtness Comb.
|Looking back to High Stile from High Crag....beautiful.|
|Pillar, a real mountain....seen from the summit cairn of High Crag.|
Looking into the sun unfortunately.
|The hills at the head of Ennerdale, the Scafell Group beyond from High Crag.|
