Scroll down to see photos of the walk
This chair would be welcome at the top of the climb
The northern reaches of Windermere
From left the horizon comprises of: Pike O'Blisco, Crinkle Crags,
Bow Fell, Harrison Stickle, Pavey Ark and Sergeant Crag
The group gathers on Nab Scar
Loughrigg in the foreground with Coniston Water in the distance
Time for elevenses on Heron Crag with views to Fairfield . . .
and Windermere in the opposite direction
From higher up Grasmere and Lingmoor Fell come into view
Great Rigg provides the background for another photo
From Fairfield the ridges of the Far Eastern fells stand out clearly . . .
and panning round St Sunday Crag, Glenridding Dodd and Sheffield Pike appear in the foreground . . .
while further to the left Helvellyn sports a cloudy hat
Making our way to Hart Crag we can see our route up the western arm of the horseshoe . . .
and a cairn marks the summit . . .
as we stop for lunch . . .
before gathering for a group photo
Tony proudly conquers the summit of Dove Crag as Robb looks on . . .
and Christine has a tale to tell
It's all downhill from here (well, nearly)
By the time we reach High Pike we have decided that this has been the best day of the summer . . .
and I take it easy on Low Pike
Almost down and we can see our initial climb to Nab Scar
