Plan B after Failing to get Past Keskadale Farm in the Slush

Causey Pike from the Car Park at Rigg Beck Bridge

Aikin Knott, Rigg Screes and Ard Crags from the Road

Leaving the Road with Skiddaw in Thick Cloud

Heading away from the Road and our Hill Causey Pike Lies Just Ahead

A Snow Topped Blencathra and Keswick

Leaving the Direct Route we Start to Climb Rowlings End

Cat Bell and the Newlands Valley from the Ascent of Rowling End

Taking a Break and Admiring the View

Nearing the Top of Rowling End

The Green Fields of the Newlands Valley and Derwent Water

Looking Down on the Frozen Fields of the Newlands Valley and Little Town

Heading West over the Aptly Named Sleet Hause

Starting to Climb the Eastern Ridge of Causey Pike

The Towering Crags getting Nearer

The Path Heads Below the Crags then Drops Down a Little Before Climbing up to the Summit

Scar Crags come into View High Above the Rigg Beck Valley

Straight up to the Summit Now

Go on Keep Going

The Summit of Causey Pike is my One Hundredth Wainwright

Leaving the Summit and Heading West Over the 1st Hump

Looking Back to the Summit at the Fell Runner who took our Photos

Nearly There

Heading East Back Down the Valley

Still a long way to go
