Pike o’ Blisco on a rather overcast day 11th April 2016.

Blake Rigg is on the left which here looks like it is all  part of Pike o’ Blisco but Pike o’ Blisco is to the right of it, the summit clearly visible with Cold Pike the green fell with the uneven summit on the right and the Coniston fells in the far distance. (Photograph taken from the Langdale Pikes).

Again taken from the Langdale Pikes.  To the south the Coniston fells: with Blake Rigg and  Pike o’ Blisco the main fells in the photo with Wetherlam; Swirl How; Great Carrs; Dow Crag and Grey Friar beyond; then Cold pike and the lead up to Crinkle Crags on the right.  The Mickleden valley with the spotlight of sun down below.

Looking further to the left from the bench on Loughrigg Fell: Wetherlam – Swirl How – Great Carrs – Wryness Pass – Pike o’Blisco – Crinkle Crags (just visible) and Bowfell.
