Off we go! See you later Martin.
Lane leading to Farm
After a lot of consultation we finally agree on the right path.
Over the stile at the foot of Sour Milk Gill.
Start of the climb.
A steep ascent to get the heart pounding.
First clear view of the waterfall.
View back to the farm from about half way up Sour Milk Gill.
Up the staircase.
View down the valley from near the top of the Gill.
View from slightly higher.
Waterfall at the top of the gill.
Almost flat after that climb.
Great views
What a motley crew!
View down the valley.
Onward and upward. Weather starting to close in. Hopefully it will clear before we reach the summit.
Rest time again.
A comment on someones organising ability?
Stunning views.
The start of the climb up from Windy Gap.
After the downhill bit it looks a long way up.
Last rest before the summit.
Views from the rest stop.
Another view from the rest stop. (Styhead Tran in the distance)
C'mon lads, last push.
View towards Styhead Tarn.
I can see for miles and miles.
Almost there!
View from the top.
Ha! Beaten all them wrinkley blokes to the top. Who's got the beer then?
Is this it?
At last!
Celebration time.
The motley crew again. Say 'Cheese'
More views from the top.
Looking down Wasdale towards the coast.
Ready to start the decent.
A Good look around before setting off.
Going down.
Going down down.
We're all going downhill (towards Styhead Tran)
80 Great Gable July10 PC
Lunchtime at last. Who's had me pork pie?
Thankfully we didn't need this, although it might have been easier on the knees!
Polar Bear club.
Heading back alongside the stream.
Down t'valley.
Grains Gill rapids. Water was very clear but cold.
Rest stop. Time for some to have a kip and others to phone home on their anniversary.
Stockley Bride before the hordes arrive.
Stockley Bridge hordes.
Leaving Stockley Bridge.
Bridge is still standing.
An awesome sight for a thirsty traveller!
At Martins Mobile Canteen and Pub. All you could ask for at the end of the walk!
Mine Host! and the most popular man of the hour.
