The weather started off better than the forecast had predicted. Glenridding Dodd from the Mires Beck Path.
Looking down Ullswater.
The weather was starting to change.
Looking down the wall that leads up to Striding Edge.
Starting to enter the snow line.
St. Sunday Crag just peeking out of the mist.
The top of Birkhouse Moor. It was very windy! I wouldn`t fancy Striding Edge today!
The snow drifts on the other side of the wall.
We now turned off for Red Tarn, couldn`t see a thing!
Ged pointing to where Helvellyn should be.
It took us a while to find the path down to Glenridding, but we eventually came across it and headed off down the valley. We did think of doing Catstycam but the weather conditions put paid to that idea.
Crossing the bridge to take the left hand path down..
Camping Barn on the left with Greenside mine workings behind.
View back up to Birkhouse Moor from the Greenside Road.
