We started climbing diagonally from Blackmoss Pot on Langstrath Beck towards Woof Stones 300m, at the base of Cam Crag Ridge, just above the tree in the picture.
Here we are at the tree at about 300m with a fine view over Langstrath towards Sergeants Crag and Eagle Crag.
Woof Stones take their name from Woof Gill to the south which marks the boundary between Rosthwaite Fell and Glaramara, above the stones the steep scrambly ridge provides an adventurous route to the summit of the fell...Rosthwaite Cam, 612m.
The silvery ribbon of Langstrath Beck catches the early afternoon sun far below in the valley. Bella watches the sport on the ridge below from the spot where we stopped for lunch. The ridge provides 250m of fine sustained scrambling at a level that most walkers with a head for heights can handle; the difficulties can be avoided by keeping to the right of the ridge.
The summit of Glaramara, 783m comes into view towards the top of rocky Cam Crag Ridge.
The rocky sections of the ridge are broken by grassy platforms which provide respite from what is both an energetic and exhilirating climb.
