Despite it being just behind Thrang Brow I've never been up there, only nipping over the end to get to Grasmere.
Setting off before the sun rose the morning started dull and grey but eventually the sun popped up from behind Loughrigg and bathed everything in lovely, golden light for a while.

We headed up the ridge, finishing somewhere around Great How before heading back the way we came. Lots of interesting new views of Great Langdale and Grasmere, and the ridge itself has some interesting scenery and picturesque tarns.
