Soon we were at the top, looking over to Skiddaw:

Continuing over Scar Crags, we were soon at the top of a rather artistic new zigzag path up Sail:

The summit cairn is not one of the Lakes' finest, but at least there are views:

Since the weather was still good, Eel Crag was an obvious next objective

We also got a look down towards Buttermere:

From the summit plateau, it was a sunny Whiteside that caught the eye:

We made the mistake of staying on the ridge too long, and after a slightly awkward steep scree descent we were soon at Coledale Hause, ready to start the long and rather industrial walk down to Braithwaite

So a fine warm-up day.
