There's plenty reports on the route, so not too many words from me, I'll just share some of the photos from my day, a December day that felt like summer until around 700m. It was pretty gusty along Striding Edge which made it a bit nervy, but care was taken as I slowly made my way across the crest. For me, it was like a mini Aonach Eagach and great fun. There are plenty of bypass paths if required. Returned via Swirral Edge, also good fun, Can't wait to get down for more in 2014. A truly stunning day in a stunning setting

Some really beautiful photos
The first one, of Ullswater, is taken from one of the laybys that I always stop at as I can manage to get down the steps there and walk by the shore
Hope to see you next time you're there!
