Kirk Fell and Great Gable clear of cloud ..
.. but it's coming in over Wastwater
Wasdale Head from the ridge of Lingmell
Lingmell summit cairn just visible behind the rocks
Scafell Pike summit
below Hollow Stones I drop below the mist and it's clearing ..
.. so I traverse onto the ridge of Lingmell and go up again!
only to find the summit still in cloud ..
.. but patience is rewarded by a Brocken Spectre ..
.. and incredible views as the cloud swirls across the summit - this is Great End
Illgill Head and Wastwater - soon to disappear in banks of cloud
Great Gable is briefly almost completely clear
