An enjoyable walk over a very nice group of hills. There's a short steep scramble at the top of Causey Pike, but nothing too difficult.Navigation was quite easy, with good paths over well defined ridges. The sunshine was a bit hazy today, but the views were still great.

Great report Andy, how did you mange to get all that to yourself :shock: some of those early pics are really nice, the 'smokey mountains' look of a couple of them is fantastic. All in all that looked like a fine day in the hills :D
