Helm crag, Gibson knott, Calf crag and back down the short cut into Easdale.

Exceptionally wet which added a good couple of hours onto time !. Coming down into Easdale was like descending a shallow waterfall.

Shame about the weather but a few nice photos, I guess it adds a bit of atmosphere to them. :)

I did a very similar walk a few weeks ago and found Helm Crag a fascinating summit area. Beautiful shot of the rainbow and of the eclipse through the link.
