DATE : 10th October 2004

View of Binsey from the south

The Uldale Fells from start of the ascent of Binsey

And further to the south is the mighty Skiddaw

Sandale Hill with it's transmitting mast with Aughertree Fell and Uldale Village to the right

The summit cairn of Binsey's West Crag with Criffel visible across the Solway Forth

Bassenthwaite Lake with the North Western Fells providing the backdrop

Rays of sunshine light up Skiddaw's Ullock Pike

Some more rays illuminate the waters of Bassenthwaite Lake

West Crag with St John's Hill in the background

Now it's Lords Seat's turn for some sunshine

Close up of Catbells & Maiden Moor

Skiddaw now free of cloud from the return route along Binsey's lower slopes

In the distance is Whitewater Dash waterfall with Little Calva to the left & Bakestall to the right

On Aughertree Fell now looking towards the Uldale Fells again

And the view towards Skiddaw
