10th August 07 - Catbells

Drive to Keswick on Derwent Water. Took the launch to Hawes End and climbed Catbells (1500ft) before descending to Myrtle Bay and catching the launch back. About 6 miles. 
Sunny at the start but then the cloud came down but it stayed dry. Great!

From the launch looking down Derwent Water
You can see the whole of Catbells here. The 'false' first summit of Skelgill Bank and then the 'proper' summit of Catbells further along the ridge
Nearly there...
The ridge walk and the scramble near the summit. You can see Bassenthwaite beyond.
On the summit...
...along with a lot of others today! Still, most of the rest of the year we are on our own!
Lovely view of the valley with 'Little Town' snuggling at the bottom
Myrtle Bay on the banks of Derwent Water as we headed for the launch landing stage and our return to Keswick
