Heading out of Kirkland

Heading up

The sun breaks through

Looking back with the Eden Valley now far below

Icy in places!

The view to the north east. A right turn here takes you up to the summit

The same view from higher up as I reach the summit plateau

Cross Fell's summit shelter

...and the trig point

Currick on the summit plateau

The view east

Little Dun Fell is in the cloud

...and to the west there is a cloud inversion

The Eden Valley is somewhere below the cloud

The way ahead. Still above the clouds on Kirkland Fell

Littledale, in the cloud
