6th May 07 - Sheffield Pike

Started overcast but dry. But poured for last bit of our walk and we all got drenched!
Started at Glenridding and climbed to the Greenside Lead Mine. Then up the zigzags to Lucy's Tongue (about 1900ft) before skirting Sheffield Pike for the descent with those glorious views of Ullswater. 

Looking back down the Greenside Road to Glenridding
You can see the path to Helvelyn  with Striding Edge left of centre. One day I will do it again!
Climbing the zigzags towards Lucy's Tongue
Suddenly Ullswater comes into view
Glorious. Even better in the sunshine!
