07 Once into the snow level
as in the picture above the hard work began, having to lift each footstep
out of some 20 cms or so of soft snow. That is Bodesbeck Law we are looking
Swinging the camera to the left across the face of Bodesbeck in the second
picture we can see the dark form of Carrifran Gans (757 metres) with Firthhope
Rig (800 metres) and White Coomb (821 metres) beyond it. Raven Craig is
the lower dark face on the left edge of the picture at the head of Carrifran
Glen with Saddle Yoke in front of it.
The third picture shows the overall arrangement of this spectacular part
of the Moffat Hills around the valleys of Blackhope and Carrifran Glen
- which create a huge letter "E" with three ridges coming towards
us and a continuous ridge forming the back of the "E".
We have above just looked at the hills on the right in this picture. To
the left Hartfell (808 metres) lies at the back of the "E" (at
the head of Blackhope Glen) with Swatte Fell (729 metres) on the ridge
running down from it towards us by the left edge of the picture. Saddle
Yoke of course stands in the middle arm between the two glens.
As mentioned earlier this "E" of hills in shallow perspective
will be visible to us for most of the day.
