On a beautiful May afternoon, George looks cheerful as he waits for Stephen to climb more slowly

A rather odd fence, ending in the middle of nowhere, with Grey Knotts behind

George races back to fetch Stephen

Hurry up!

A lonely fence post, with Honister Crag and Black Star beind

Reaching the summit, the view north is revealed suddenly and dramatically, the glacial valley of Newlands Beck running towards the Skiddaw massif, with Blencathra on the right.

Looking north-west past the splendid summit cairn over Hindscarth to the Derwent Fells

A panoramic photo shows the Newlands valley between Hindscarth on the left and the High Spy to Maiden Moor ridge on the right

Descending towards Honister Hause

Some of the roads made in connection with the Honister Quarries are visible here, with Buttermere just visible on the far right

The site of a bridge which used to carry a quarry railway over the road
