8.5 mile circular from parking area near Rigg Beck along road than tracks up to Low Snab farm. From there it is a steep pull onto High Snab Bank and a slight scramble up ridge onto Robinsons broad summit. From here we descended across boggy area and up onto High Snockrigg then descending to Moss Force before ascending nice easy ridge over Knott Rigg and Ard Crags descending to and fording Rigg Beck back to car. 996m ascent overall. Cloudy but Robinson seemed to avoid the cloud cover. Only a few people about on a Sunday. Nobody on Robinson at all. Afterwards drove into Keswick to bag Castlehead.DanTrig13/06/2021
