|Comments:||It was misty, wet and windy when I reccied this walk on Thursday. I was hoping for a much better day today. It wasn't raining or windy but the mist was even worse. It lasted till we were climbing Angletarn Pikes - hence some rather misty photos early in the walk. We eventually we had some decent views but too late to take many photos.|

With the prospect of another misty day I decided to get a photo early on - Hayeswater Gill
The group wonders how we know that this is Gray Crag . . .
John comes up with a suggestion
Crossing the ridge we could be anywhere - but we did head in the right direction because . . .
we eventually reached Thornthwaite Crag
The High Street trig point looks a little forlorn without its white coat
Karen and Ian make their way across Sulphury Beck (or is it Prison Gill?)
A tantalising glimpse of Hayeswater
Lunch by Angletarn - I do believe the mist is beginning to clear
Not what you expect to meet on Boredale Hause
Time to re-adjust layers as we prepare to descend to Hartsop - and no mist!
Angletarn Beck puts on a good show . . .
as the water tumbles over the rocks . . .
and we prepare for the last 'climb' through the woods
