Lingmoor Round

A variation of the Langdale Round, but instead of going around Lingmoor we go along it, then back round via Blea Tarn as usual. Although it should give good views of both valleys it's somewhat spoiled by a wall that runs along the spine of the fell. The path after the summit is also very narrow and sliding down rocks is required at times. Very quiet up there, but we probably we won't be going back in a hurry.

Quite misty and hazy to begin with but with strong, winter sunlight.

View of Wetherlam from the side of Lingmoor

View of Wetherlam and valley from side of Lingmoor

Langdale Pikes in the distance, the Great Wall of Lingmoor visible in front

Looking back towards Windermere from Lingmoor

Looking down on Chapel Stile, Thrang Brow can be seen from here (and vice versa)

The Squeeze on Side Pike

Proof that we're still fit and lithe

I didn't even have to suck in my stomach

The south side of Side Pike in all its glory

Mickleden Valley, The Band, Bow Fell, Langdale Pikes, Crinkle Crags and more (amazing what you can fit in with a 14mm lens)

Wetherlam again, with its omnipresent and ominous clouds

Very well deserved refreshments

We'd rested at the Three Shires a little longer than expected and by the time we were heading back over to Chapel Stile the sun was setting. Nothing spectacular but a pleasant change from continual grey clouds.
