Steel Fell, Calf Crag, Gibson Knott, Helm Crag

The first hike of the new year took me to the central fells. I parked on the road leading into Grasmere and walked back up towards the Travellers Rest before cutting through the fields and off toward the fells.

I walked up along the road before entering the fells proper. I then began the climb up to the summit of Steel Fell. Conditons were good, cold but clear.

I followed the fell side above the valley before arriving at Calf Crag. From here I wandered along to Gibson Knott and then Helm Crag.

I stopped to have a good look at the lion and the lamb; light was fading so I decided against scaling them...

Image

I walked back a short way toward Gibson Knott before following the winding path down into the valley; where it connected back to the road, and back to the car.

Lovely walk to start the new year. Looking forward and hoping to complete many more this year.
