Around Green Burn Bottom

 Friday 13th April turned out a very fine day indeed, Pete and a small group took the 555 bus to Steel End at the north end of the pass of Dunmail Raise and ascended Steel Fell 553m. Pete took this shot looking over Thirlmere from the wall on the steep ridge above Steel End Farm at 300m.

 Looking north as we make our way along the undulating plateau between Steel Fell and Calf Crag; the Helvellyn range is beyond on the right.

 Green Burn Bottom is far below in this view from the plateau looking south towards Helm Crag 405m, in the centre of the frame, which terminates the ridge running SE from Calf Crag over Gibson Knott.

View NW towards Gibson Knott as we ascend the steep path up Helm Crag; Steel Fell is beyond on the horizon with the valley of the Green Burn below.
