Starting the climb up the northern side of the fell.

Cottage spotting . . . its over there . . . I think.

From up here we can see the pub is having a busy Easter Sunday lunchtime !!

From two thirds of the way up - the view of Buttermere and Fleetwith Pike.

The Summit party.

Mosedale from Mellbreak

The Mosedale Holly, seen in the last picture,

but closer this time as we dropped down into the valley.

High above us, a Kestrel hovers and soars, looking for its lunch.

The return track down Mosedale

with Low Fell and Darling Fell in the distance.

End of the walk - the cottage - on the right (not the pub on the left !!!)
