Comments: A short sharp dash up to Red Screes from Kirkstone Pass.
Nice start to the walk with blue skies.
Looking back to the start; Kirkstone Pass Inn.
Raven Crag just south west of the summit.
Another view back to Kirkstone Pass Inn.
Still heading up - this is where we decided to take a more adventurous route up to involve a little scrambling.
Like this...
The Kirkstone Pass road to the far left with The Struggle heading over to the right down to Ambleside. The fell in the background is Wansfell.
Froswick and Ill Bell over St Ravens Edge.
The same view from higher up with Kentmere Pike and Harter Fell behind.
Wansfell and two sections of Windermere.
Starting to level out now after almost a thousand feet of ascent. We've also hit the snowline now!
Red Screes summit shelter and trig col.
Frozen summit tarn.
A small cornice of snow along the ridge down to Middle Dodd. Helvellyn is over there lost in the thick cloud.
An awesome little snow cave. Do you think it was properly used?
