Afternoon ascent from NT campsite in Langdale of Shelter Crags North Top (775m) via the band. On to Shelter Crags (815m) as the weather became overcast, then Crinkle Crags - Long Top (859m), and Crinkle Crags South Top (834m) with nasty scramble as descended through cloud towards final peak of the outing, Great Knott (696m).

Nuttall route from Great Knott to Shelter Crags. In the clag throughout, so lots and lots of compass work. Great fun!huwthomas06/11/2017
Chris and I parked at Jubilee Bridge took path over large stile towards Brotherilkeld and then along the river Esk then Lincove Beck up Rest gill to the Three tarns then across the tops to the summits of Crinkle Crags. Had lunch on top, beautiful cloudless day though cold and a bit windy. Returned to main path via steep grassy route by Adam a Cove, no clear path. First day after clocks had gone back, just made it to the car before dark.karentracey29/10/2017

like a man possessed head towards the Crinkles. love this ridge! very rocky ups and downs with amazing views of langdale valley on one side and Eskdale valley on the other. also great view of the scafells from behind where you normally see them from wasdale. went up to the summit via bad step a 15ft climb which was great fun and we did with other walkers. Amazing amazing mountain seen from everywhere like ambleside and windermere. Wainwrights favourite mile ridge walk in lakelandScotty 2 Hotty07/05/2017

Solo. From South. Took the grassy rake to the left to ascend, rather than the direct route and bad step. Good decision! Visibility poor and raining.Statto22/02/2017
