Route Map

 

 

Looking up to the high Howgills over lower Bram Rigg - Calders and Arant Haw the furthest high spots (left and right respectively).

 

Bram Rigg Top and Calders.

 

Clearly visible from the Castley path as it approaches the crossing of Long Rigg Beck is the 'Horse of Busha'.

 

Long Rigg Beck - Fell Head (l), Bush Howe (c) and White Fell (r).

 

Fell Head.

 

The beginning of the tedious climb up the long ridge of White Fell.

 

Looking back down the White Fell ridge - Castley Knotts on the right.

 

'The Horse of Busha' - not an ancient shape artificially cut into the fellside but merely a patch of stones naturally fallen into this position.

 

The White Fell ridge - as steep as it looks.

 

A long distance view of the Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks – Penyghent (middle left), Whernside (centre) and Ingleborough (middle right).

 

The Calf - a gloomy prospect to the north as a snowy cold front approaches……………….

 

…………………………a little brighter towards the south.
