The valley bottom was rather muddy...
But much better when we got up onto Red Pike
We stopped past the beautiful Scale Force
We had fun scrambling the airy "big walls" of Haystacks
And got great views down the length of Buttermere from the head of the valley
Climbing Grassmoor via Whiteless Pike gave us great views of the valley below
Whilst the summit of Grassmoor gave us great views of Hopegill Head
...and Crummock Water in the valley far below us.
Finally, a lamb grazes near fields of Bluebells in Rannerdale
We stayed at the Syke Farm Campsite in Buttermere.
