Green Gable summit and Great Gable on the left of the picture. When I got here great Gable was completely hidden by cloud and in the space of seconds it was like this.
 

From the same place I look down to Ennerdale and Buttermere / Crummock.
 
I guess there was more green grass and less red scree over there when 'Green' Gable was named. Of course the person who named it may well have been colour blind.

Heading up to Green Gable, the bit in the sunshine. The darker slice of fell is the top of Great Gable.
