We headed over from raven Crag out of the forest area to route over to join the path after High seat to Bleaberry summit. Wetlands and small rivers running and boggy sections on this route, unclear paths in sections. With Richie and MBZoe Little22/09/2019
From the Great Wood Car Park up through the forest to High Seat and along the very boggy footpath to Bleaberry Fell before descending down cat gill.Eggletina28/07/2019
From Armboth headed down and across to the summit. Apart from Becs wee this was very uneventful. Nice summit and views from the cairn and wind shelter. From the summit we decided after much discussion and with the weather apparently going to turn to go down to Ashness bridge and walk the road back to Watendlath. However instead of walking back to High seat and down we cut across the heather. This was really hardwork. We finally got to Ashness gill with nowhere to cross. We Scared a red deer out the heather making this way already worth it. We found a way down the gill and chilled at the untouched and unseen waterfall. We headed up and out the gill down the actual path, passed the bridge before climbing what felt like K2 to get to Surprise view where I fell asleep. I was exhausted. After my sleep we walked the 2 miles back to the car. Headed home for a Godfathers, film inside man and loving.Scotty 2 Hotty21/07/2019

A great run out on the fells. Started from Keswick in glorious sunshine and this remained throughout. Dry underfoot pretty much and not as bad as I expected. The peaks were also pretty busy, people had clearly decided to try and bag these peaks in drier conditions. Great fun.

Circular walk from Armboth Carpark, Thirlmere. Had to drive around as the Dam wall/road was closed for works. Armboth onto High Tove. High Seat then Bleaberry Fell. Decided against dropping down to Walla Crag as it would have put too much onto an already long day [left home at 0500 and started walking at 1100!]. I wouldn`t walk this route in the summer as it would be far too boggy. Fortunately I was able to walk over most of the bog as it was frozen. Some patches were defrosting as I found out the hard way! Finished in the dark, however the permissible path along the west shore of Thirlmere was spot on!Butty12/01/2018
