Distance: 2.6 miles
Total Ascent: 120 metres
Time Taken: 50 minutes
Start Time: 11:05
Weather: Dull with showers. 14oC
Today was the complete opposite of
Tuesday's walk up to Red Screes; the sky was grey, not blue and there
were frequent showers. I decided to stay low and have an easy walk
around School Knott and Grandsire and although here wasn't too much in
the way of views today, it was still worth the effort for a quick walk
close to base camp Love the Lakes.
The ever increasing new tarn alongside the track from
Cleabarrow. Casper tries to conceal himself from Dougal (bottom right).
It was a bit of a dreary walk up to School Knott here
looking to Windermere across Heathwaite.
