|A Lake District Classic|
Tuesday 29th April 2013
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.
The last view of Buttermere before we descend back to the car.
