Did a clockwise circuit of the horseshoe out of Ambleside. Pretty cloudy and windy on the way up but led to some great scenes when a gap in the near clouds would appear and through it you could see what looked like massive snowy mountain ranges behind. While those were clouds too for a minute you could imagine you were in the Himalaya.
Part of a grand round that started with early start on Pinnacle Ridge, up St Sunday, over to Farfield, down to Grisedale Tarn (where a lovely Lady was taking an early morning dip - after the coldest May on record!) and finally to Helvellyn and down Striding Edge.
