Start Point :
Distance : 4.0 miles Height Ascended : 1500 feet
The confluence of Grains Gill Beck and Carlingill Beck.
The foot of Small Gill - opposite here the track crosses over to the north side of Carlin Gill.
The thin track (above the tree line) can just be seen in the right of
this picture - it avoids having to negotiate the rocky bed of the beck.
The view down Carlin Gill from the foot of Black Force.
Looking up Black Force.
Percy on the alert.
The route continues up the narrow cleft where the path
swaps sides to pick the best way up towards The Spout.
Looking back to
The Spout - a 10m fall that blocks the head of the gorge.
The only escape involves a short but easy scramble to the left (see climbers above).
The top of Carlin Gill - the sides are as steep as they look.
Another look down from a position just above The Spout.
Great Ulgill Beck – the Breaks Head / Fell Head ridge above.
The summit of Uldale Head looking east towards Docker Knott and Simon's Seat.
The view west from the middle western slope of Uldale Head - Grayrigg Pike to the right overlooking the M6.
Blease Fell from the lower western slope of Uldale Head.
Uldale Head - Weasel Gill upper left.
