Lake District walks - Great Cockup

The Uldale Fells are, in Wainwright's phrase, "placid curves", as on the left of this picture, taken from the flank of Great Cockup. Straight ahead however is Bakestall, the north-eastern outpost of Skiddaw, which here it hides from view.

Here you can see Skiddaw just emerging from behind Bakestall.

More placid curves: the view south from the top of Great Cockup. Trusmadoor is down on the left, Burntod Gill on the right.

Taking the path at the level of the beck down Burntod Gill adds a little excitement to this walk, as the path tends to disappear sometimes...
