Hi, second walk of our stay in The Lakes, we again travelled early and parked up just past Uzzicar Farm on the Newlands Valley road, just before the bridge at Stoneycroft, room for quite a few cars here.

It promised another great day as we kitted up we could see Causey Pike from the car park, another plus was our path off Barrow later would bring us directly to our car :D

Causey Pike, first target
We walked along the road to the end of Rowling End where the direct path meets the path going across, a more gradual climb.

Barrow from the climb
Our path meets the one from Rowling End summit (Birkett) then its a steep ascent to the summit

Summit seems no closer
We were getting closer to the crown, my husband not looking forward to the scramble and exposure :(

Showing final climb
We reached the rock top and after hubby said we aren't going straight up I had a look round the corner.

Just checked the route
It was poles away and hands on, for me it was ok but if you don't like scrambling its a bit harder, he did make it though :D This was my 100th Wainwright and Glynn had put a sign in his pack for me :lol:

To Outerside
This path showed some erosion where it had been washed away but we soon turned off to ascend Outerside

We then visited Stile End before a drop to Barrow Door and the climb to the summit, this afforded us a view of our route out and back.We reached Barrow summit which for a small fell gives superb views.

So it was back down the same way where at Barrow Door we dropped onto the path and back to the car, quite tiring in the heat but :lol: a great day

Those are great fells! I'm on most of them an awful lot - probably ought to go to some of the other peaks sometimes! Love the 100 pic :D

Well done on hitting the ton Susan.

Thanks Derek, you seem to be doing lots of walks so it won't take you long. We have the Wainwright books and they are really good reference, now they have been updated by Jesty all paths should be good. My husband uses three websites that I may have mentioned before, they all show os maps which if you are copying the route you can print off to stuff in your pocket as a rough guide, or alter them to suit your route, saves getting the map out of the rucksack.

Sean McMahon's superb www.stridingedge.net

David Hall's www.walkthefells.net which has a great map with parking places and how busy they are


Andrew Leaney's www.leaney.org


There are many more but these have lots of routes etc


Stay safe Sue :D

Much happier when you folks include a map with your walks :) You don't always do! Then I can have some idea of where the walk is :lol: I don't do maps myself but everyone knows where things are in Scotland 8) Looks like nice hill terrain in that area.

To be honest, I wouldn't have a clue how to include a map on my posts (does it need a GPS?)... but then everyone knows where everything is in the Lakes don't they? :D

I have written an instruction on how to drawn and insert route maps with some hopefully helpful screenshots in this thread: http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=1161&p=34765#p34765 :wink:

Thanks - I'll have a read of it sometime... but I probably go into such infinite details in my reports, people can almost see it without the map! :lol: But it doesn't need a GPS then?

Nope. No GPS required so it provides a good alternative for us oldies :lol:
