Whiteless Pike

One of the smaller fells in the north-west lakes, Whiteless Pike makes the most of its 660m...
...the ridge in particular providing a dramatic descent...
...after an interesting ascent beside Rannerdale Beck.
As a snow shower passes through...
...Crummock Water appears briefly beneath the clouds...
...while Melbreak looms beyond the western flank of Grassmoor.
Descending from the summit of Whiteless Peak...
...along the fine ridge which gave dramatic views over Robinson - Scarth Gap pass which we crossed by bike recently, the obvious coll in the upper right of the frame.
The last leg - descending toward Buttermere, High Stile and Red Pike beyond. The obvious beck on the flanks beneath these two, makes a superb scramble - it is quite possible to climb entirely within the bed of the beck, on superbly clean and rough rock, from Buttermere all the way to Bleaberry Tarn...
...best left for the long hot days of summer like this one, back in 2004.
