From the Band Three Tarns and crinkle Crags with MarcusLykewake4228/05/2017
Another trip to the Lakes, this time with eyes on some of the southern central fells. Bethany and I had been recommended Crinkle Crags by an Uncle for a decent fells, good veiws and recent footfall - he wasnt' wrong, we saw maybe 3 other groups in total during the day. It was an almost overcast day, but warm enough. Starting from Great Langdale, we took the path up along Owendale Beck, with a stop by a fairy pool, and a lie down on the grass towards the top. Up top was chilly, with some fun small scrambles, after bagging the Shelter crags and all 5 Crinkles, we decended down the over Great Knott, and back to Oxendale west of Pike O'Blisco. 5hrs 30mins: 11.1km; 888mByronHaywood29/04/2017

Great Knott, all 5 Crinkle Crags, both Shelter Crags, Bowfell and Bowfell North Top, Esk Pike, Rossett Pike Left the car on the one patch of road in Langdale where there were no police signs and walked up Oxendale to Great Knott and then to the Crinkle Crags and Shelter Crags. It was windy today but Shelter Crags lived up to their name and there were places in the lee of the wind to have lunch. Down and up to Bow Fell and then down and up to Esk Pike. Saw a couple of Spitfires flying around. Down to Esk Hause and then took the main path back down to Langdale taking in Rossett Pike on the way.tsharp04/05/2016
