After a bit or umming and arring over what to do today I decided to do my last 2 of the far eastern fells a nice easy and fairly shortish walk considering it was pouring down with a nice strong wind to go with it. got parked at Hartsop around 9 am and set of on the Hawes water track taking the left hand fork towards the filter house after about 1/2 mile decided to take the more direct if rather steep route straight up to the summit along side an old stone wall

Looks like the weather hasn't improved much since I left. Overcast with sporadic showers, sounds about the right description of my last day.

You got some nice photo's too. Really like the one of Angle Tarn. Looks great there, so it must look amazing in the sunshine!

I agree with you on the good old bumslide. Nothing like shooting down a steep slope and saving some energy.

Looks like your dog is enjoying himself as well. Every time I see pictures of people walking with their dogs it makes me want to get one. Never quite enough though!
Well done on finishing the Far Eastern fells. I have yet to complete a book, but i'm not too far off finishing the Eastern fells. Looking forward to getting into the far Eastern fells. Place Fell looks awesome. Can't wait to get up there!

Angle tarn is lovely place in the sun I first went there on a glorious day got to admit I found place fell a little bit bland and the weather certainly hasn't improved getting worse I think ,
