A fingerpost indicates the path to the summit
Looking back to The Hause from the start of the climb
A grooved path heads directly up the slope but it's easier to follow a graded path to the right which soon turns back and joins the grooved path at a higher level above its initial steep section
Looking to Great Dodd and Clough Head
The far eastern fells
Fairfield and Helvellyn
The path eventually joins a shepherd's path which makes a rising traverse across the southern slopes of the fell
Looking back along the shepherd's path to Arthur's Pike above a mist shrouded Ullswater
Blencathra comes into view as a path breaks off right towards the upper slopes of the fell . . .
. . . and leads directly to the summit
Looking back to Ullswater from the upper slopes
The summit trig column soon comes into view
