Start of the ascent by Slades Beck.

Trying to show the south-west arete of Skiddaw Little Man.

The way ahead is clearly evident.

Long Side and Ullock Pike - reward for toiling up to Carlside Tarn.

Back of Blencathra - not as immediately interesting as the dramatic view from the A66.

Not a great photo, but one of the best views in the Lake District. Derwentwater surrounded by magnificent fells.
