Grange Fell Maze

Sub 2000s: Grange Fell

Date walked: 11/09/2020

Time taken: 1.15 hours

Distance: 3.5km

Ascent: 170m

I had originally planned to tick Grange Fell and Culkin Rigg on my way home from a few days in Snowdonia, but with the weather closing in I elected to climb just Grange Fell this day.

As others have described, there is good parking under trees at NY253815, a situation helped by the seemingly ongoing road closure. From here the ascent up the zig zag track is simple, the only slightly tricky part (easy enough with a GPS) being finding one's way though the trees that have now overgrown the firebreaks. The trig point stands in the middle of a small clearing in the forestry plantation.

I got back to my car just in time to avoid the cats and dogs that began to fall from the leaden sky.
