Buttermere - 22 October

At last, the forecast delivered the fine weather for a few hours in the morning. After a wander along the side of the lake we walked up through Warnscale Bottom to reach Green Crag, the first of four small peaks below Haystacks. By this time the cloud cover was virtually complete and a fine drizzle accompanied us over Green Crag, Haystacks SE Top, Great Round How and Little Round How. The drizzle disappeared around here somewhere as we climbed towards Honister Crag to bag our 20th peak since Wednesday lunchtime. Some of them we have visited previously but returned to them because we are trying to finish off a Third Round of Wainwright's High Fell. Fleetwith Pike would be our final summit of this trip and our only excuse for re-visiting it is the view from the descent to Gatesgarth Farm.


  1. I just had to leave a comment.
    What a beautiful place and your photographs are just stunning.

    Enjoy these last few days of October

    All the best Jan

  2. Ian, your pictures put mine to shame, absolutely stunning. Maybe I should invest in Lightroom?
    All the best to you and Pauline.....
