I went up Hallin Fell a few years ago but the weather was bad so I didn't get to enjoy the view, so I decided it was worth revisiting.
I started with a boat trip across Ullswater.They're called Ullswater Steamers but I'm pretty sure it was a diesel.

From the landing stage at Howtown it's a short steep climb up Hallin Fell.

From here there's a choice of routes to get back to Glenridding.A path goes along the lake shore, or you could go over Place Fell. I decided to follow the road into Martindale and head up towards Angle Tarn.

I was planning to go up around the back of Heck Crag, but looking ahead it seemed like the path would be covered in snow, so I changed course and went up onto the ridge instead.

There's a 531m top shown on the map which I thought at the time was the summit of Beda Fell.When I checked afterwards I found out it wasn't.

I continued along the ridge to the two summits of Angletarn Pikes.

And then it was down via Boredale Hause to Patterdale and back to the car at Glenridding.
