We ascended the path on the left side of Taylorgill Force and then headed for a shallow gully on the end of the fell.
This was quite slippery , but did add a touch of excitement to the accent.
We sheltered and had a sandwich. The day was gray but luckily most of the clouds were just above our lowly peak.
By the time we reach Styhead the weather is much better and the snow line has retreated up the fell.
After an uneventful descent we head for the Royal Oak in Rosthwaite where they do a brilliant afternoon tea. Proper loose tea and scones with rum butter and home made jam. Unfortunately by the time I took the photo we had eaten them all.
