From Mardale Ill Bell we knew we had done all the real tough climbing for the day. The path is pretty obvious.
We took a slightly more direct path on grass to give the feet a rest.
and very quickly the top came into view.
a kindly chap took a picture of the two of us at the top.
The views on a day like this are wonderful to behold.
And with that we turned right towards The Knott and fell number 3 for the day.
