Took the fabulous weather window to climb Catstycam from Glenridding. Ascending direct from the breached dam by the north-west ridge, a seldom trod steep pull with a tremendous culmination bang on the summit. Visibilty was superb from The Cheviot in the north to Ingleborough in the Yorkshire Dales and a great array of eastern Lakeland fells beyond Ullswater on show. Coming back towards Birkhouse Moor I captured this handsome shot of the peak with light feathered whispy clouds.
