Notable points on the panorama, from the left: Boat How, Caw Fell and Haycock are on the horizon beyond the extended summit of Yewbarrow and Stirrup Crag in the middle distance. The footpath down to Lingmell Col can be seen in the foreground but not the branch to the left which comes from Mickledore. Red Pike, Scoat Fell with the summit of Steeple visible over its shoulder, Black Crag and Pillar encircle the valley of Mosedale. Hen Comb is seen in the gap before Red Pike, High Stile and High Crag beyond Kirk Fell. On the horizon is Grasmoor, then Whiteless Pike and Wandope appear as shadows rising to Eel Crag. Great Gable is now in the middle distance and on the horizon Sail continues to Grisedale Pike and Scar Crags. Just to the right of the bulk of Great Gable is Green Gable with Hindscarth beyond it. Causey Pike is just visible to its right then Binsey in the far distance. Dale Head appears beyond Grey Knotts before Ullock Pike, Long Side and Carl Side rise to Skiddaw and Skiddaw Little Man with Maiden Moor in front of them and Base Brown in front of that. Down below is Sty Head Tarn, and the fell rising to its right is Seathwaite Fell. Back on the horizon Knott and High Pike are the distant Northern Fells with Derwentwater in front of them. Grange Fell is to its right and Blencathra on the horizon beyond. Bleaberry Fell, High Seat and Raven Crag lie slightly in front and to the right, then Clough Head appears in the distance. Broad Crag is now clear in the foreground with Great End beyond it and on the horizon Great Dodd (with Watson's Dodd a shadow in front of it) leads to Stybarrow Dodd, Raise and White Side, then the sharp peak of Helvellyn Lower Man. In front is the whalebacked Ullscarf with Sergeant's Crag in front of that. Again on the horizon is Helvellyn, Nethermost Pike and High Crag, Dollywagon Pike, and St. Sunday Crag. Cofa Pike and Fairfield appear beyond High Raise, then Hart Crag, Rampsgill Head and High Street (with Dove Crag blending in in front of it) beyond the nearby Ill Crag and Esk Pike. Further right is Pike o'Stickle with Harrison Stickle behind it and Ill Bell on the horizon leading to Yoke. Across the valley lies the shapely Bowfell, with a ribbon of Windermere to its right, whence follow Shelter Crags, the five tops of Crinkle Crags, Wetherlam and Black Sails, Great Carrs and Grey Friar with Brim Fell and Coniston Old Man behind it. Dow Crags leads down to Buck Pike, Brown Pike and Walna Scar with Hardknott in front beyond the Eskdale cairn. Caw and Harter Fell are the last peaks before the Duddon estuary to the right of which lies Black Combe in the distance. In front of that is Slight Side which rises to Scafell and its subsidiary peak Symonds Knott, just above Mickledore. On a clearer day than this the Isle of Man appears on the horizon beyond Wastwater. Now Backbarrow rises to Middle Fell and Seatallan and back to Boat How to complete the circuit.
