Pike o' Blisco

Another great day of weather in the Lakes. After a leisurely start we decided to head into the Lakes at 11am! As we were driving in, plenty of people were heading out of the Lakes.

Views on the drive in - Looks good in the Langdales

Nice red post box for the French brigade (to remind them of Blighty!)
We parked in Langdale, and got 'hussled' by a friendly National Trust bod trying to sign us up for membership (well it is Easter). I guess at £5.50 for 4 hours parking you soon make membership pay in the Lakes.
Climber on Raven crag - bet it was cold

I always enjoy the walk up Pike o' Blisco and today the road from Little Langdale to Great Langdale was still blocked by snow. Some hardy souls were camping at the NT campsite, and the Yurts looked busy (and more appealing!).

Easter treats at the top

Stand tall - Crinkle Crags and Bowfell behind
On top the views are brilliant; Crinkle Crags with Bowfell due West, Black Comb and the sea to the South West and the Coniston fells (Old Man, Wetherlam etc) to the South.

Views of the Coniston Hills

And.... Black Combe (right sky line in the distance) and the sea (to its left)

Red Tarn - frozen over

I discovered the limit of the microspikes today - lets just say they get a little clogged up in deep powder!
