Walked with Rufus and Betty before meeting Grandad for lunch. A less than inspiring day weatherwiseESkelton01/06/2019
Short route up from Scawgill Bridge but strayed onto path into quarry which meant a bit of gorse-bashing to get back to the one by the forest edge. Reasonably painless 4th top of the day. Falls just about visible from end of short path.signyred24/05/2019

After a great Christmas the kids have gone back after a week. This is now our traditional annual start to the year in the lakes. Once again staying at the babbling brook. Parking at Scawdell bridge where Bec was bending over seeing if her knickers were showing only for the bloke to get out the car in front. Hahaha. We set off straight up the wall straight to the summit. Very very step and really felt my unfitness. Bec stormed ahead but I made slow steady progress. Beautiful views on a gorgeous day towards the Loweswater fells. (also found a perfect wild camping spot) It was near this point we realised our gps maps have run out. Overall great start to a big year for the wainwrights. Stunning 360 views as far as Scotland and recovered enough to set off to the next fell of the day.Scotty 2 Hotty02/01/2019

From Byerstead via Kirk Fell on to Lords Fell then across to Ling Fell and Sale Fell with weather deteriorating all the way.MichaelF08/12/2018
Took Marley for a stroll, up the slog next to the wall, popped off these 3 in close formation, dropped down to the col at the back of the woods and did some navigating through the forest, no easy way down to Spout Force though so left this for another day. Great weather, sunshine bringing all the colours out on the fells, stunning.Mark T03/12/2018

The direct route from Scawgill Bridge. The forecast was for the weather to improve as the day progressed. The sun came out as we climbed . . . then it changed. Wind and rain for the rest of the day.apshepherd14/10/2017
