An easy Sunday walk to another Munro on the way home.

Brighter than yesterday with very light winds still - only snow right at the top.

The Western Fannich 5

$matches[2] A great day out after staying in Inverness - going higher up than I've ever been in Scotland. Fresh snow on the tops and some very old, compact snow on the Northern slopes of Sgùrr nan Clach Geala which really needed winter kit. Much less snow on southern facing slopes. No wind but a co...

Binsey

$matches[2] Staying at my Mum and Dads place in Long Marton and with some bad weather due for Tuesday afternoon we opted to just get Binsey out of the way for Wendy. Took the longer approach from Bewaldeth to make a bit of a walk out of it - very easy, very pleasant. 1 Track.JPG 2 Binsey.JPG 3 OPen...

Re: Snow situation on A’Chailleach and Sgurr Breac

Don't suppose anybody has an update on snow conditions on these two and the other Fannaichs do they? Was hoping to do a few of these on Saturday but aware that there is more snow forecast but not sure how this was settling? Obviously the amount of snow (and condition) will have a bearing on just how...

Ingleborough and Whernside


our_route.gpx Open full screen  NB: Walkhighlands is not responsible for the accuracy of gpx files in users posts



A superb afternoon in the Dales. Very dry everywhere.

A few new cairns have cropped up on the high point - Whernside in view


3 Plateau PYG.JPG

Whernside over typical Dales limestone


5 Ingy.JPG
Back to Ingleborough - it now has 19 ascents for me and is my most climbed Hewitt over Blencathra (17).

Due to it's location to me, the fact it's one of my favourites and the many different routes up it, I can't see it ever losing that lead now.....although of course it trails many of the Forest of Bowland hills by a long way still


6 Summit.JPG
Whernside Summit - the guys on the top had a map spread out over the Trig and were surrounding it...so I couldn't go to it today


7 Descent Ingy.JPG
Descent with Ingleborough looking like the lonely mountain from the Hobbit books

It's a long descent to Ingleton from here but fool proof with the wall as a guide

Grisedale Pike +

$matches[2] Still, clear but overcast day on the spectacular Hopegill Head ridge with Wendy and her friend.

New lake District path - Central Fells

Thought this may be of interest to some on here. There is a new "Pennine Way" style path over The Pewitts section between High Tove and High Seat - certainly makes one of the most notorious stretches of the lakes easier but I know this kind of thing isn't for everybody.... $matches[2] 10 L...

The not so wet now Central Fells

$matches[2] Taking advantage of the dry spell to get Wendy round these ones. Although a new paved path doesn't half make The Pewitts easier.

Hazelhurst, Bleasdale and Fiendsdale

After work walk on a windy, cold (for April) evening.

Dropped down from Fiendsdale Head into the wilds of Fiendsdale to make it a bit longer before the usual return. Very dry underfoot.
