Middle Fell

The fabulous weather from this week continued today and it was well worth a visit to Wasdale for a walk up to Middle Fell.

Kelly Hall Tarn sunset

A few photos from a sunset walk around Kelly Hall Tarn on a lovely evening.

Coniston Old Man

What a gorgeous morning, the sun was certainly shining this morning and the fells were glowing with it – time for one of our favourites.

Walla Crag

Today I took the opportunity for a relatively quick walk from Keswick (in between shop stock deliveries!) up to Walla Crag.

Brock Barrow

Time for a late afternoon walk up to Brock Barrow after a fabulous day of sunny weather – there are great views from up there on a day such as this.

Beacon Fell

I went with Connie and the dogs to check out our old favourite Beacon Fell…

Loweswater Fells

What a fantastic summer’s day for a walk over the Loweswater fells – the sun was shining, the birds were singing (the dogs were barking!) – I really enjoyed this one.

The Dodds

It’s not so long ago that I did this walk (back in January) but I wanted to have another walk around to check notes as this will be a featured walk soon in Trail magazine.

Birks

The weather turned out to be one of the poorer days in the middle of a stunning week this week…but you have to take your opportunities when you can so that’s what we did when we had a short walk up to two of the smaller fells at the head of Ullswater.

Red Screes

Time for a quick walk this morning but the weather was not too kind…or too summery at all this morning!

Orrest Head

Time for a quick jaunt up to Orrest Head before lunch…

Middle Fell

What a fabulous morning it was with really clear air and that ‘good to be alive’ feeling. We had time for a quick walk up to well trodden (by us) Middle Fell, the views from there of the Scafells and the head of Wasdale are simply fantastic.

Blea Rigg via Whitegill Crag

What a fantastic morning, the sky and light were excellent today and it was a great day to try out a scramble up to Blea Rigg using the Whitegill Crag ravine.

Coniston

The predicted weather forecast turned out to be correct today – the low lying fog was due to stay put whilst up above there would be sunshine…

Blawith Knott

There was a chance of a quick walk with the boys to Blawith Knott on this Good Friday afternoon…

Gummer’s How

It was pretty windy today even at valley level, of course this was even worse higher up (which I was expecting) but I took the dogs up to Gummer’s How which is an easy walk at any time. Of course it turned into a quick sprint complete with snatched photos – at least the fresh air was refreshing!

Kirk Fell

Today I ended up on a fell I hadn’t set out to climb – I had in mind to climb Great Gable but when I climbed to Beck Head I remembered that Kirk Fell was one of the ones that Dougal hasn’t yet done (there aren’t many!) so as it was so near I decided to go for it…

Tarn Crag

Today I had a meeting with Clive Hutchby who has edited Wainwright Book 1, The Eastern Fells (more of that below) so we decided on a walk on the Far Eastern Fells which is the book under revision at the moment…

Brock Barrow

Everywhere I went this morning there were heavy snow showers with it settling on the roads in many places. I ended up deciding on a short walk to somewhere that was not too high given the wind strength down at valley level and ended up getting a pleasant surprise with the way the weather turned out. Given the earlier conditions I don’t think I could have asked for any more.

Haystacks

What a gorgeous morning it was today – the sunrise was perfect and I timed it just right to get some fantastic reflection shots on Derwent Water. After clicking away for a good while at different locations I went over to Buttermere for a climb to Haystacks. It was amazingly quiet, there wasn’t a soul around and I only passed one person on the descent – another great winter walk.

Langdale Circuit

The Langdales were oh so cold today but it was great to be out in winter conditions again. The freeze thaw cycle had made some places quite treacherous, the path to Stickle Tarn was especially so and required spikes to safely climb

Blencathra via Hall’s Fell Ridge

‘For active walkers and scramblers, this route is positively the finest way to any mountain top in the district. It is direct, exhilarating, has glorious views and (especially satisfying) scores a bulls-eye by leading unerringly to the summit cairn’ – AW

Loughrigg Fell

This morning turned into a right old palaver – firstly I set off for Helvellyn but the local weather said that east would be cloudy all day as I set off so I decided upon Coniston…
