Route Outline

This is one of the most satisfying Lake District walks in the south-western sector of the National Park. Relatively quiet the views are superb and the walking varied and often challenging. Like many days the weather started well but reaching the summit of Wetherlam the cloud rolled in and although the tops were still clear of cloud, photography became a useless pastime.
