Greendale Tarn - Greendale Gill
Distance: 2.8 miles
Total Ascent: 525 metres
Time Taken: 1 hour 20 minutes
Start Time: 06:45
Weather: Wet. 15oC
It was predicted to be wet today but at
least it was still dry when I set of on an early walk up to Middle Fell
this morning. It was very dull and overcast though and the rain came
just as I dropped down to Greendale Tarn and that made the return leg a
damp and squelchy affair to say the least.
Buckbarrow across the shoulder high Bracken.
Which way to Middle fell Casper?

Looking back to the Screes - this was the best view I
would get of them today!
Close up on the Screes.
Looking over Greendale towards the coast.
It looks a bit murky up there boys.
Casper and Dougal on the summit of Middle Fell.
Greendale Tarn from the direct descent to it - I could
hardly make it out through the mist until I was right upon it.

Dougal Athletic crosses Greendale Gill.
The descent alongside Greendale Gill and it is
absolutely chucking it down now.
