Cockrigg Crags.
Mist and rain creeping in.
From here on the cloud decended as we walked to the summit.
Summit cairn now in view, not far now.
The cloud lifted as soon at we reached the cairn so we had a little bit of a view.
The view west.
And south towards Eagle Crag.
Armboth Fell summit. What you cant see here is the amount of water under the grass. Lets just say wet feet all round!

We had to sit on Fisher Crag for around 20 minutes just to get this photo, but the view is fantastic. Another angle can be seen from Raven Crag nearby.
A photo just to show how high Thirlmere was today, the trees to the left are usually by the shore... So about 5ft higher... Maybe more...
