A great circular walk if you don't mind allot of up's and downs.
The day started frosty with low cloud cover (the norm for kirkstone pass) but when we crossed over to high hartstop dodd we had some great sunny spell's.
If you are feeling energetic you should give this a go
the summit at stoney cove pike
looking back at the descent of hartstop dodd
looking up to hart crag from caudalebeck farm
looking across to hartstop above how from the ascent of high hartstop dod
the steep ascent of high hartstop dodd
looking back to middle dodd from red rcrees

Hi Mike I'm thinking of doing this walk at weekend, it doesn't show any paths on the map did you just wing it or is there a path that is easy to follow

This is a great walk with as you say plenty of ups and downs. I did it on a beautiful day last year. To answer Chris G, there are plenty of paths to follow all pretty obvious on the ridge down and up to Caudale Moor, but whether they'll be visible through the snow? Have fun. Dave :)
