the start in the village of Barbon with Eskholme Pike ahead
climbing above Barbon watched by a docile bull
higher up with Barbon and the Lune Valley below
the steepest part of the climb looking down on the Lune Valley
Barbon from the cairn on Eskholme Pike
on the ridge above Eskholme Pike, which is totally insignificant from above
the last part of the ridge onto Calf Top ..
.. where the trig point has been given a coat of paint since my visit on April 11th
looking west from the summit soon to be enveloped in mist
dropping out of the mist on the north ridge
descending the long north ridge curving round to the west
looking up Dentdale from the ridge
the Howgill fells and Sedbergh from Brown Knott
zooming in on Sedbergh
the final descent westwards ..
.. to Fellside ..
.. which has been recently restored
an excellent finishing point for a drink while the drivers are ferried back to Barbon
