Helvellyn - Complete Panorama

Notable points on the panorama, from the left:

On the flat top of Helvellyn are the OS trig. column, a solitary walker and on the horizon Scottish hills beyond the Solway Firth. Long Side and Carl Side lead to Skiddaw then beyond its eastern slope is a glimpse of Sale How then Lonscale Fell. Great Cockup, Little Calva, Great Calva and Knott show beyond the gap of Glenderaterra beyond White Side in the near distance. The several summits of Blencathra are visible, namely, Blease Fell, Gategill Fell top, Halls Fell top, Atkinson Pike, Doddick Fell and Scales Fell - Watson's Dodd is in front of these last two with a glipmse of Clough Head beyond it. Bowscale Fell is in the far distance then three peaks of the Helvellyn range line up, closest first - Raise, Stybarrow Dodd and Great Dodd. Beyond the right hand shoulder of Great Dodd the darker slopes of Souther Fell are visible then Greenside leads down from Stybarrow Dodd across the scene, the collapsed mines easily visible, Hart Side can be seen just behind it with Great Mell Fell to the right. In the foreground Swirral Edge sweeps across to Catstye Cam. Now in the distance are Little Mell Fell and Gowbarrow Fell, both beyond Sheffield Pike, site of some of the best views of Ullswater. Now in the foreground is Birkhouse Moor with the Birk Fell section of Place Fell behind it. Arthur's Pike, by Ullswater, is beyond and the High Street range continues with Loadpot Hill (with Place Fell's summit in front of it), Wether Hill (beyond Boardale Hause and Beda Fell), Red Crag (beyond Angletarn Pikes and The Nab), High Raise (beyond Rest Dodd), Rampsgill Head,with The Knott just in front to the left (both beyond the highest point of Striding Edge in the foreground) and High Street itself - Gray Crag is visible in front of it. Hartsop Dodd appears just to the left behind the slope of St Sunday Crag. In the middle distance then is Thornthwaite Crag with Harter Fell and Kentmere Pike in the haze beyond. The summit of Froswick just appears over Caudale Moor beyond the summit of St Sunday Crag. Ill Crag and Yoke follow, then what appears to be Ingleborough shows up on the horizon. Now beyond the shelter lie Red Screes, Dove Crag, Hart Crag, Fairfield and Great Rigg. Dollywagon Pike and High Crag lie beyond Nethermost Pike with lesser fells around Windermere in the distance. Coniston Water has a bright bank of mist covering it and in the middle distance, beyond the shoulder of Nethermost lie Silver How and Helm Crag. Lingmoor lies beyond them and in the background are the Coniston Fells, namely: Wetherlam, Old Man, Brim Fell, Swirl How, Great Carrs, Little Carrs and Grey Friar. Then there's Pike o'Blisco with Blea Rigg in front and Steel Fell in front of that. Then Cold Pike and Crinkle Crags with Harrison Stickle and Sergeant Man almost indistinguishable from each other, and Thunacar Knott in front. High Raise is in front of Bowfell whose summit is hidden by cloud. Esk Pike and the Scafells are also in cloud but Great End peeks out at the side beyond Glaramara. The whalebacked Ullscarf lies in front of these. Great Gable is now prominent with Green Gable, Kirkfell, Red Pike, Scoat Fell and Pillar all beyond Brandreth. High Crag, High Stile and Red Pike appear beyond Fleetwith Pike and Dale Head. Great Bourne, Hindscarth, Robinson, Mellbreak, Whiteless Pike, Grasmoor, Eel Crag, Hopegill Head and Grisedale Pike, complete the circle.
