Hart Fell ridges horseshoe, near Moffat

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This superb horseshoe of escarpments and ridges - including the very fine Saddle Yoke - encircles the skyline around the Blackhope Burn. It makes for the classic route to the Corbett of Hart Fell.


Very steep (and rough) initial ascent. Good going along the ridges, then a pathless wet section across to Under Saddle Yoke. Mostly grassy ridges for descent with final steeper slope.

None to start.
