Distance:  13 miles Ascent:  3,000 feet
Weather: A fine but cloudy day, very warm
Accompanied by:

Ray (leader), Mandy, Marie, Phil, Eric, John L

Comments: A steep climb to begin with followed by more gradual ascents and descents. The ascent to Great Calva was steeper and the descent was quite a sharp one. A long trek back along the valley.

The initial climb is quite steep but not technically difficult


The 'forward group' admires the view while the rest of the group catch up


Time for a pause on Carrock Fell


There is a bench on High Pike but you have to be quick to get a seat
