Sphinx Rock, Great Gable Lake District by 

There was a couple of images I wanted to get from a walk along the climbers traverse of Great Gable. These were Sphinx Rock and Napes Needle. They were only obtainable if you climbed some of the lose scree where several dead sheep seemed to have lost there footing. This didn’t inspire me with confidence but never the less I manged to gain the height needed to capture the images I wanted to get. This images has been very popular with both fell walkers and climbers alike.

    Brave man and well worth the effort

  • Thanks Jamie – it was a bit tricky trying to keep my footing, setting up my tripod and looking into the sun. Harry Hill would have had a right laugh !!
