Helm Crag

DATE : 13th August 2005









Stone Arthur and Seat Sandal from Underhelm


Helm Crag from Easedale


The sun breaks through to light up Far Easedale


View south from Helm Crag to Grasmere & Loughrigg Fell


Patch of sunlight at the foot of Stone Arthur


Seat Sandal & Fairfield


Close up of Grasmere ( Oh , and some sheep )


The closest we get to a sunset tonight , some orange clouds above the Helvellyn range


The same view the following morning and there is still plenty of cloud around


My tent pitch with the pass of Dunmail Raise in the background


The sun bursts over the A591 down below


Close up of the brightly lit area


Steel Fell


To the west is Easedale


Close up of Easedale Tarn & Blea Rigg with the Langdale Pikes at the back


The continuation of the ridge to Gibson Knott & Calf Crag


Helm Crag summit , the 'Howitzer' with a gloomy looking Dunmail Raise in the background


And the other rocky feature on Helm Crag summit , the Lion & the Lamb


The lowering cloud moves across to cover Seat Sandal's summit now


There's brighter conditions over the Coniston Fells


Heading across to the col between Helm Crag & Gibson Knott


On the descent to Helmside there is a fine view to Steel Fell


Heading down towards Green Burn


Seat Sandal from Helmside
