Arant Haw to Fell Head circuit from Howgill Lane.Jake99407/04/2010
Not actual date as no log kept. Cross Keys Hotel, Yarlside, Randygill Top, Fell Head, Bush Howe, The Calf, Bram Rigg Top, Calders. Scorching hot day and really too many steep grass slopes up and down for the weather. To cap it all had to summon up hitherto unknown stamina to rush the last three summits in order to make it to Calders before the thunderstorm. The sunlit trig point looked like a beacon against the forboding black sky. Was a bit silly really as the lightning started to strike on the far side of the valley while I was on top. Had to forsake the ridge descent and take the valley for maximum rate of reduced altitude. Just got into the car when the deluge started.Cautley Spout is interesting. Worth a revisit but maybe just to do the main ridge and in less haste.ijpowell01/04/2010

I believe this is the walk when we wondered why northern sheep don't have one side pair of legs shorter than the other so that they can contour the hills. And also the walk where I decided that a breathable waterproof was a necessary investment! With Carolyn, Peter and Ruth.ruthatlast01/09/1990
