Wild camp in Langstrathdale, 7th June 1989

Tray Dub wild camp

After a first climb of Ullscaft and High Raise the previous day, Graham and I are fulfilling an ambition to spend a night in the wild. This is the view from our tent door at 8am. We're camped at a locality named Tray Dub, at the junction of Stake Pass with Langstrath

It's not named on the map but this seems an obvious name for this lovely water cascade, just upstream from the watersmeet in the main Langstrath valley

Very slightly upstream from the main fall. We're looking into the upper reaches of Langstrath. Rosset Pike is straight ahead, with Esk Pike at the head of the valley to the right.
