Still not got used to this camera as a lot of the pictures have not turned out today. It was dull and the pictures were under exposed.
View of Buttermere.
The ground was still frozen and it was difficult to make progress upwards in places. Red Pike is interesting as the summit appears to be skiddaw slate on top of Ennerdale Granophyre. Across the comb are crags of the Borrowdale volcanics.
We descended via Scale Beck, the path was still iced over in places. So we crossed the beck to bye-pass the worst bits.
On the walk back I had to rescue a sheep being chased by two dogs that some inconsiderate owners were letting run loose. They were so far back on the path that they probably could n't see what was going on.
