Gary's done this walk many a time before - this shows most of the horseshoe, up the right hand side, to the head of the valley and down the ridge on the left back to the start, 20k (12.5 miles) and taking in 8 fells on the way, taking us 6 hours including a nice lunch stop on a rather breezy Nan Bield Pass - a wonderful day out in the fells!

A bit of cairn hugging on Ill Bell - I told my friend I'd give Ill Bell a hug! (it's her favourite fell)
and the final fell of the day - Yoke
I've not had time to do any more on the sparrowhawk over the weekend but did a little bit on him this evening so here's an update...
Hoping to get it finished in the next couple of days - and hoping for another sighting!
As always your comments are very welcome, have a wonderful day :-)
