Eagle Crag

High above the confluence of Langstrath and Greenup Gill we sheltered in the lee of a small rock outcrop to escape the violent wind. We set the camera up more in hope than with any expectation of the clouds parting, but the strength of the wind gave us hope that the cloud wrack might break up. Sure enough, fast moving patches of light eventually raced across the rising diagonal of Eagle Crag.
