Looking up to what would be Robinson, if the cloud was higher.
Looking back to Catbells.
The ascent up the ridge to Knott Rigg. This section was steep.
Ard Crags, our second fell of the day.
Leaping into the air against the strong wind.
Knott Rigg summit cairn. Up here the wind really was strong, at some points is was difficult to walk without getting blown over.
The view back down to Catbells.
Ard Crags summit cairn.
Hindscarth and Robinson now free of cloud.
And now some sunshine, all we didn't get was rain on this walk.
