Taking a break at Cove Bridge on the Walna Scar road.
Looking forward along the Walna Scar road towards Brown Pike on the right.
Having covered Brown Pike, Buck Pike and Dow Crag in heavy cloud we
dropped down onto Goat's Hawse overlooking Goat's Water.
Taking a photograph of Goat's Water from Goat's Hawse with the bulk of the Old Man of Coniston behind.
Descending the Old Man with the fells receding into the distance.
Back into the cloud at the summit cairn of the Old Man of Coniston (803m).
The descent of our route overlooking Low Water in the foreground with
the very end of Levers Water barely visible behind. The zig zag path easy to spot.
Half way down the zig zag path over Low Water.
A short stop at Low Water before continuing down.
Lowe still and our path splits left into the Coppermines Valley.
One of the may waterfalls on Levers Water Beck and Church Beck.
Thanks for visiting.
