Nice set of pictures, looks like you had fun, though your commrades look pretty knackered in that second photo. :)

The second photo was taken from the first 100 m after leaving the lake side.
It took my wife a little time to adjust to the uphill but the rest of the walk seemed easier for them after this picture was taken.
It was Charlie's first fell and my first wild camp for well over 20 years.
Loved every minute !!
