Start point: Tilberthwaite car park (NY 306 010)
Tilberthwaite – High Fell – Blake Rigg – Wetherlam Edge – Wetherlam – Steel Edge – Tilberthwaite Gill – Tilberthwaite
Distance: 4.6 miles Total Ascent: 918 metres Time Taken: 2 hours 5 minutes
Weather: Sunny with broken cloud. 12-14oC.
The sun was shining at times again this morning but many of the higher fells still had cloud lingering on their tops, fortunately for me Wetherlam remained relatively clear. This is a great little route from Tilberthwaite – it was almost reminiscent of a mini-Helvellyn ascent via Striding Edge and Swirral Edge – using Wetherlam Edge for the steep climb up and Steel Edge for the drop back down into Tilberthwaite.
