At the start of the walk there are some great views up to Gray Crag from the valley floor.

Those are the slopes of Brock Crags.


Waterfalls on the lower parts of Angletarn Beck.

St Sunday Crag and the pointed peak on the left of Gavel Pike - a subsidiary of the main fell.

Dove Crag, Hart Crag and Fairfield. The smaller peak on the far right is Cofa Pike - a peak along the ridge linking Fairfield to St Sunday Crag.

Considering it was so sunny just a few minutes ago it really clouded over quickly! Hopefully not for too long! The view south is starting to open up as we gain height to Boredale Hause.

The beautiful valley of Deepdale.
Helvellyn and Catstye Cam come into view.
Patterdale and Ullswater.
Deepdale getting all the sunshine.
Brothers Water with Kirkstone Pass and Red Screes behind. You can just make out Middle Dodd infront of Red Screes too.
Striding Edge is catching the sunshine.
And here comes the lovely sunshine again as it lights up Place Fell.
Patterdale looking stunning this afternoon.
The obvious path up Place Fell. We headed south from here rather than up there.
Hallin Fell with its obvious beacon on top, and in the far distance the Pennines. Must be 30+ Miles away. The town you can see is Penrith.
Fairfield and St Sunday Crag on the other side of the valley.
And slightly further to the right you can see Helvellyn and Catstye Cam clearly.
Brothers Water far below. The skyline includes Red Screes, Little Hart Crag and Dove Crag.
And a wider view of the valley below now the sun has come out properly. Such an awesome view.
Deepdale still in the sunshine.
St Sunday Crag.
Our first Wainwright just ahead; Angletarn Pikes.
And what a stunning view from the summit - here looking to Glenridding, Ullswater and on the right is Place Fell.
This is the summit of the north top of Angletarn Pikes with the slightly lower south top behind.
A view across the summit to the north east.
Gray Crag and Thornthwaite Crag.
And again, this time with the summit of Brock Crags in view.
Beautiful Angle Tarn.
Angle Tarn and Angletarn Pikes.
It was such a peaceful place here today and the weather made it feel more like August than October!
The view across a calm Angle Tarn to the Eastern Fells.
The view down Bannerdale to Beda Head. It was around here we could start to hear the Deer that were on the nearby fells.
A view across Angle Tarn towards Place Fell.
Angle Tarn, Angletarn Pikes and Place Fell. Blencathra on the far left in the distance.
Although unnames on the OS Map, I'm going to say these are Brock Crag Tarns.
Another of Brock Crag Tarns with Rest Dodd and Rampsgill Head behind.
The summit cairn on Brock Crags.
Blencathra.
This is where we rejoined the Coast to Coast Path and then headed down to Hayeswater.
The Nab in shadow and Martindale.
Steel Knotts. You can just make out the rocky summit called Pikeawassa.
Hayeswater - the water level is much lower since the removal of the Dam at this end.
A final view of the slopes of Brock Crags on the path down alongside Hayeswater Gill.
