St Sunday Crag

After failing to get parked in Hartsop we parked at Bridgend and decided to tackle a favourite ridge,  Lord's Seat and Gavel Pike onto St Sunday Crag.

Being unfit this was a long hard slog up the ridge beside Coldcove Gill.

Gavel Pike.

It was around here that extra layers of clothing were added as it was bitterly cold.

Across Deepdale could be seen Link Cove. The sunlit mound in the middle of the cove being a favourite campsite.

The summit in sight.

The older snowfields near the top were easier to walk on than the icy paths.

A quick photo of Nethermost Cove then a zoom down via Birks.

Unfortunately we were too late for the Booth's cafe in Keswick.

Conditions look excellent. Oh more for more days like this!

Yes the sun was welcome but that wind blew straight through.
