This planned weekend was up in the air for a while this week after Adele’s diagnosis so Myla had to come home as she had Chicken pox. Anyway managed to get a day but with no money because of a £500 MOT we decided not to stay over. Setting off at 5:45ish and no Maccies breakfast we made our way around on Whinlatter pass to Maggie’s bridge carpark on Loweswater just before 8am. Making our way through Holme Wood with my new found walking stick then taking a left for the more direct route to the summit. Very steep and lung burning but fairy quickly reached the summit cairn by the fence.Scotty 2 Hotty13/04/2019

Parked on the edge of the Lamplugh road and took the clear path that goes down towards Ennerdale. At the point where it turns down we turned up a well trodden path though not signed or on the map. the path took us straight up to the top of Burnbank fell then onto Blake Fell and finally Gavel. from here we dropped down another clear path though not on the map towards Crummock and gradually walked round to meet the original path that we had left. Lovely sunny day though a good breeze on top. Walked with Chris.karentracey08/07/2018

Mellbreak the Return. After a memorable day in the Loweswater hills three years ago I returned with Mark hoping for a better day. Walking from Maggies Wood car park, the steep climb up to Mellbreak was in sunshine retracing our steps and dropping down to cross Mosedale Beck to tackle Hen Comb head on. As we approached the summit the rain started and as we climbed Gavel Fell it was getting quite breezy. Glad to stop for lunch in the shelter on Blake Fell before we carried on to the still uninspiring 'top' of Burnbanks Fell. Weather improved on the descent to Holme Wood and the car and a welcome pint in front of the log fire at the Kirkstile InnPhilip A03/05/2018
