I'm going to have to start putting pictures on here as well, this is a great thread. Moorlass and I have been doing a fair bit of walking recently, she takes all the pictures, as anybody who knows her on facebook will have seen. This weekend we were at Ullswater and Aira Force, what a great time in lovely conditions.

More of us should be getting out there you know, almost every voice I heard was a southerner.

Love the pictures on here, keep them coming.

We did mate, it's only a couple of hours and we had all day. Started at Glenridding and went up to Pooley Bridge and then back. Great views from there. But when you walk up to Aira force the views are absolutely spectacular. I'm a bit biased and think Ennerdale is the most beautiful lake in the Lake District, but Ullswater surely pushes it very close. It was a great day out.

I was planning to go up St Sundays Crag today so headed from Patterdale up to Grisedale Tarn. However, when I got to Ruthwaite Lodge I decided (after going in tha mine) to cut up right and along the beck and up over The Tongue to Dollywagon.
But, I went too far right and ended up going up a steep gully up (i think) High Crag. I was truly shitting myself as it got steeper and steeper but I made it somehow, literally hanging on for dear life at times. Exhilarating to say the least. Carried on to helvelyn etc as normal, views were spectacular today

Obviously not in the same league as some of those fantastic scenes, but yesterday the wife and I went for a wander past Ashness Bridge and up to Surprise view after having a wee jaunt around the Bowderstone. The weather wasn't amazing, the views were, it is absolutely awe inspiring looking out over Derwent Water all the way the Bassenthwaite Lake, absolutely beautiful. Yet again Moorlass took all the pictures (I never have a phone with me).

The walk today took 5 1/2 hours as for Great Gable we did it from Wasdale Head Inn (free car parking just before it ).

The route we took was round the back of Wasdale pub and straight up Kirk Fell (quite damanding ) but worth it a short decent off kirk fell gets you onto a path up Gt Gable probably the best path on there and a bit of hands on scrambling near the summit we decended down path the gets you to Styhead tarn then you can either go staight back down valley to Wasdale Head or take the corridor route (nice path but another climb) which joins the Scafell Pike path down to Wasdale we took the latter approx 6 hr walk .
