One of AW Wainwright's favourite montain walks - no summits but what views!

The Gable Girdle. Monday June 6th 2005

On the path up to Sty Head with Blencathra on the far skyline
Further on with Brandreth behind
Looking North over Sty Head Tarn
Turning the corner - Red Pike in the distance and Kirkfell
Kern Knotts Crack - a classic "very severe" rock climb (I've done some of it! [Barry])
Posing below Kern Knotts
The view down Wasdale with the great bulk of Yewbarrow on the right
Looking back towards Sty Head with Skew Gill right of centre
On the traverse path below Great Gable with Great End and Broad Crag forming the skyline
A classic view of Wasdale
The Napes with Napes Needle just discernable
The Cat or Sphinx Rock, depending on where you view it from! This in the feline version.
Looking back to the Great Napes
The crossing of Beck Head - High Crag and High Style Ridge on the right

The traverse path under Gable Crags with Ennerdale opening up below - much better for the lack of conifer plantation!

Looking SE with the Langdale Pikes (left), Allen Crags (centre), Bowfell and Great End

The descent of Aaron slack, easier than expected
A bespectacled local inhabitant keeps a watch!
