9.5 mile loop from Blencathra Visitor centre. BVC - Skiddaw House - LITTLE MAN - LONSCALE FELL - BVC. No proper direct route back to BVC. Couldn't cross beck (water flow) and spent an hour finding a crossing lower down (fallen log).richoakes19/01/2020

Started from Under Skiddaw car park, proceeded up the relentless gravel track. Deviate off main track to climb the steep peak of Little Man. I made the mistake in cloudy conditions that this was Skiddaw proper until the clouds cleared to showed the looming mass of Skiddaw and my gps confirmed it. Brilliant views from Little Man of Helvelyn range and Keswick.giant_hiker23/09/2019
