Helm Crag from just above Dunmail Raise where I started the climb
looking down on Dunmail Raise with Steel Fell beyond ..
.. and again as I climb into sunshine
Thirlmere with Skiddaw and Lonscale Fell in the distance
a conspicuous boulder as the gradient eases looking across to Helm Crag and Gibson Knott
as I reach the summit area I am very surprised to find mist driving over the top from the south
I go down a bit to look for Grisedale Tarn - here it is with St Sunday Crag beyond ..
.. and here with Dollywaggon Pike beyond
Seat Sandal summit cairn from the wall which crosses the summit
as I descend you can vaguely see hills to the north beyond this shorn Herdwick ewe ..
.. here she is zoomed in - what a poser!
descending the south ridge of Seat Sandal with the Vale of Grasmere below
further down the ridge with Helm Crag on the right
another shot of this lovely ridge looking to Helm Crag
zooming in on Grasmere
the lower part of the ridge - now open access through the fields
Helm Crag with the Langdale Pikes beyond
Helm Crag with some haymaking in front
looking back at Seat Sandal now clear of mist
