Almost next door to the Newlands is the Coledale Horseshoe. The day's weather was calling for rain around noon, but we started early and hoped for the best. Visibility was good for the first climb of the day - Grisedale Pike. Whew, this was a painful ascent. Though it does flatten out partway up, the last bit is very, very steep.
You then follow this valley and the last easy climb is Barrow which you can see in the distance. It's a very gentle descent from there.
