A Lake District Classic
Great Gable

Tuesday 29th April 2013
A Classic Lake District walk from Honister slate mine to the fabulous Great Gable, taking in Grey Knotts, Brandreth, and Green Gable along the way.

Starting the climb to Grey Knotts


Tony, taking a breather !!


Still Snow on the mountain tops...and it's MAY tomorrow !!!!


The first view of Great Gable and from here it looked very high and a long way away.


Tony on the 1st summit, Grey Knotts


Me on the same summit, don't why he zoomed in !!!


The views up here are amazing


Summit 2, Breandreth


Me, on Brandreth with Great Gable in the background


One of the many Tarns up here.


Just a great Lake District view


Ennerdale makes a distant appearance


The Ennerdale Valley


To the right of the Ennerdale Valley on the other side of Haystacks is Buttermere and Crummock Water


Kirk Fell, we planned to go there today but didn't quite make it


Tony on Green Gable, with the daunting prospect of Great Gable to come


Me at the same place with Kirk Fell in the background


From Green Gable we had to descend into Windy Gap before the big climb to Great Gable


And a big climb it is


Steep and hard work


But the view from the summit is worth it.


Just fantastic views in every direction


Wasdale, England's deepest lake


The war memorial at the summit


looking over Kirk Fell


Haystacks and High Stile


looking towards Ennedale

After the descent, Great Gable behind us.
