|Crossing Scales Beck|
The path rounds the Glenderamackin Valley before heading up towards Scales Tarn. A quick break at the tarn to admire the view before making our way up to Sharp Edge. The walk up is very steep but the view is excellent throughout. The ridge itself feels quite exposed at times but with care can be negotiated with little problem.

There are many photo opportunities on the ridge although it is important to keep your wits about you at all times! We have a great view of Blencathra from our house so it was time to reverse the view and look over Blotting Raise and the Pennines. It wasn't long before we were at the end of the ridge and ascending the gulley.
