Part of The Newland Watershed walk by Stuart Marshall. This was Wainwright no.5. The half way point in terms of summits. I really struggled getting up this one because of the relentless sun, lack of water (I had some but needed to ration), and cramps in both legs. Took an electrolyte tablet, a pain killer, and carried on towards Hindscarth.NorthernWayfarer08/07/2018

An absolutely fantastic round with superb ridges, tops, scrambles, ridge walking galore, great views all round, could see the see (blighted with wind turbines), had a bit of a cloud come through on Hindscarth but apart from that great walking weather. Went up the Hindscarth ridge from the Newlands Chapel, round onto Robinson and down the ridge from there back to the Chapel. Will definately do that route again sometime. Set off at 10 and down by 2.30Mark T01/02/2017
