Calf Crag and Steel Fell

This was our 3rd walk in 3 days, and surprisingly our longest. The walk out to Calf Crag is much further than it looks on a map, however the path we took meant that the distance was just a sideshow. Greenburn Bottom is a gem of a place and will easily go in my top…

Cold Pike and Pike O’Blisco

Day 2 dawned and again the weather was dry. Not quite as sunny as it was the day before, however with the cloud off the tops you have to make the most of it in the Lake District. The plan was to grab two southern fells just off the Wrynose Pass, now I’m sure there…

Little Hart Crag and High Hartsop Dodd

Our week in the Lakes arrived and with it the possibility of some changeable weather. To be honest we did pretty well, looking at the forecast the first 3 days would be good, so out we went for 3 walks. Then a day of rain followed by a mixed bag, where we got one more…

Boredale Horseshoe

Tarn Hows, Surprise View and Aira Force

The title is a bit misleading, we didn’t do all these on the same day, they were split by a couple of days and a walk for myself along the High Stile Ridge. The first section of photos, of Tarn Hows, Surprise View and Ashness Bridge were all done on one day. A couple of…

High Stile ridge
