Conditions:Breezy (surprise at the summit) but dry & sunny
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.
