A brilliant New Years walk around some Far Eastern fells. Taking in Place Fell and Beda Fell to help towards the second round and also including three other summits.
Weather crisp but with a cold wind - strangely cloudy on the High Street fells but gin clear elsewhere.
- Hallin Fell from the shores of Ullswater
- Heading up Hallin Fell from the Ullswater way - the first time I've used this as a way up Hallin Fell and a steep and charming way
- It also has a great view of Ullswater behind
- Large obelisk on Hallin Fell summit with Place Fell beyond
- Descending Hallin Fell to the church with Martindale ahead
- Following quiet roads (at this time of day on New Years Day) into Boredale
- Heading up Place Fell
- Higher up
- Summit now in view
- Helvellyn range from the Trig Point
- And again - a light dusting of snow has fallen overnight on the higher fells.
- After descending to Boredale Hause it's an easy wander up the other side (coast to coast path) - Northern (and higher) Angletarn Pike in view
- Southern top from the Northern
- Angle Tarn from the Southern Top - anybody doing the higher High Street fells really drew the short straw with the weather today
- Heading along the easy ridge to Beda Fell. Cold walking into the wind.
- Beda Fell Summit
- Steel Knotts from Martindale
- The route up Steel Knotts from Martindale is fairly gradual as it slants up it's Western flank. I wasn't complaining as this was my third ascent from road level today.
- Pikeawassa - the summit of Steel Knotts
- Ullswater as I descend the excellent ridge
