an early start - Ullock Pike from Southerndale
on the ridge between Southerndale and Barkbethdale with Binsey in the distance
looking back down the ridge from the scree above Randel Crag - not a recommended route!
Longside Edge from the scree
Skiddaw summit after 8 months of closure - and it's horrible! - too windy to stand
cloud racing over the back o'Skidda fells - Knott in the centre
Skiddaw north ridge
Blencathra and Lonscale Fell from the north ridge
Bassenthwaite Lake from lower down the ridge
Longside and Ullock Pike with Randel Crag (my ascent route) in front
panorama of Skiddaw and Ullock Pike from the foot of Southerndale
Here's hoping this is an end to the foot and mouth nightmare!
