descending from the bus and donning waterproofs
Horton in Ribblesdale church with Pen y Ghent beyond
a lot of water in the river
climbing above Horton in Ribblesdale
looking back down the very wet ascent path with the massive quarry in the background
looking back down the ascent path
Pen y Ghent ahead
looking up the steep south ridge
looking back down the south ridge ..
..and again as we meet a bunch of 3 peakers
lunch stop on the relatively sheltered southwestern ridge
the steepest part of the ascent ..
.. now climbing up into a bit of scattered snow
approaching the top of Pen y Ghent
at Pen y Ghent summit
the start of the descent
impessive falls into Hunt Pot
looking into Hunt Pot from the west ..
.. and another shot from the east
weather clearing over Pen y Ghent as we head back down
sunshine on the descent track to Horton in Ribblesdale
Pen y Ghent completely clear from Horton in Ribblesdale
supper in the Plough Inn at Lupton
