The first view through the trees to Catbells and Skelgill Bank.
And again from the top of Cat Gill.
Bleaberry Fell in the shade.
And the beautiful Borrowdale.
The Vale of Keswick and Skiddaw.
Warm sunshine on Walla Crag.
Great Dodd and the Helvellyn Range to the east. Sean from StridingEdge.net was walking over that way earlier today.
The way down skirting the top of the crags before descending.
