An easy and pleasant ridge walk up from Newlands Hause, suitable for almost any weather conditions. Returned the same way. Scafell Pike (the main purpose of our visit) was clearly out of the question with gusts of up to 45 mph forecast. As it was, it was very wet and windy, cloud cover from 1500’, clearing later.
c. 4 miles / 1050’.
