Trouble is Roger, there are lots of pointy bit sticking up thereabouts, and they all look different depending from where you happen to be seeing them from.

True, Tony - very true!

I knew, amongst my thousands of photos around Keswick, I'd find some that showed this feature. Here's a couple that show the bump in question - I'm now pretty certain it's Ether Knott, which I've marked with a red arrow in both photos. Joppety How's further to the south, more prominent, and closer to Castle Crag. I've marked this with a green arrow.

If you look at the shape of the ridgeline in Roger's photo it appears to match the profile around Ether Nott too. First photo's from Latrigg, second from Castle Head.

Thanks, Tony.   :bow:  :bow:  :bow:

The photo from Castle Head shows the outline well.

I found an image of Ether Knott on the interweb, taken from the south. I've mirrored the image horizontally, to make it as if seen from the north, and the profile (see attachment) is remarkably similar to the image in the OP

The original uncropped image is here, scroll halfway down to find image

Has nobody else tried Google Earth or similar?  If this is the same peak, it's just to the north of Watendlath (probably Joppelty How, but not named by Google).

If you use peak finder on that circled peak it appears to be "great end"

I would have said that Great End was the almost invisible peak just above the rooftop with the TV aerial and just to the left of where High Spy comes down.  Seen more clearly in this shot:

You're about right there Roger - definitely not Great End. Here it is (arrow points to it), viewed from the Millenium Stone -

It was there when I took the photo Mike. Just hovering in the sky, really strange. Remarkable I know, but perfectly true!
