Start Point : Dobgill Car Park (NY 315 140)
Distance : 4.0 miles Height Ascended : 460 metres
Harrop Tarn and
Just above the tree-line now looking
southeast towards Dollywaggon Pike,
Same view higher up.
Looking back along the fence-line towards a
distant sunlit Blencathra.
A gloomy looking and frozen Blea Tarn.
Hetty reaches the summit of Standing Crag first.
Standing Crag the summit.
Zooming in on Blencathra.
Blea Tarn and a glimpse of Bassenthwaite to the right.
Having made a decision to abort the planned walk to the summit of Ullscarth it just had to get brighter!!
But it wasnt the visibility that was the problem (route-finding is easy just follow the fence to the top) it was
the trudge through the soft show that was 3-4 feet deep in places making it very slow going Ullscarth will be there another day.
The Helvellyn Ridge from just below the top of Standing Crag.
Who's a pretty girl?
Eyes down and look in.
