  Scafell Pike.
  A walk with Gerry and Bob
We had cancelled our trip to Scafell the previous week due to bad weather reports, in contrast the weather today was perfect!

We started out from Seathwaite, crossing Stockley Bridge and making our way up Grains Gill and onto Esk Hause.

Our first stop was Great End

Here the view from Great End looking towards Keswick and Skiddaw can be seen.

   
We then made our way to Ill Crag - shown here top left of picture with Scafell Pike on the right..

After leaving the Pike we descend to Lingmell Coll and then climb up to the summit of Lingmell.

Here Gerry can be seen photographing the lads at the summit cairn.

   
We leave Lingmell and head down the corridor route, crossing Piers Gill.

Great Gable and Kirk Fell can be seen as we travel a little further down the Corridor Route - We carry on back to Seathwaite via Sty Head Tarn and Stockley Bridge.

A glorious day!!
