Photos From Crinkle Craggs

A lakes classic starting and ending (with a pint or two) at the Old Dungeon Ghyll at the end of the Langdale Valley. I've done this walk in both summer and winter and it's one I'll definately do again. A tough walk, but well worth the effort.

I turned right at 3 Tarns and headed down The Band back towards The Old Dungeon Gyhll.
