Styhead Tarn and The Gables from Great End

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Great Gable dominates the view Northwest from the edge of the Great End cliffs, with Styhead Tarn nestling at it's feet. Green Gable is the supporting fell to the right with the bulk of Grasmoor directly behind. The rock pinnacles of the Great Napes ridge cling to the left flank of Gable. The "breast route" and Aaron Slack paths are clearly seen climbing to the top of Great Gable and Windy Gap respectively. Eel Crag and Grisedale Pike are seen to the right of Grasmoor on the horizon. The ridge leading to the top of Pillar is seen in the left distance.

Nice detail (in the prose as well as in the picture) Pete

I first went over Windy Gap as a 14 year old, backpacking for my DoE award. It left such an impression I moved to the area 10 years later!

This is a gorgeous picture.

Best wishes - Jethro

Many thanks Ismail, Sergio, Andrej, Gintarele, Ueliton, Soroosh, Georgi Varkos, Jethro and Akbar&Armaghan for your generous comments and likes. These were the best conditions we've ever had on the scafells, a notoriously cloudy bit of the Lake District!

Best regards from England.
