High Tove

This was another place I haven’t been to for a while, up to the much derided Armboth Fell and then along the central ridge before descending to Raven Crag. Armboth Fell is not a summit as such, being no more than a rock plinth on a hummock in a particularly boggy area. I must say on a day such as this though, the going was easy and the views all round were superb and it turned out to be a pleasant early summer walk.

High Tove

The snow has virtually disappeared and the blue skies of last week have gone again. The warm front brought with it rain and general dreariness – not wonderful conditions for a walk, but at least we got some fresh air for our walk up to the central band of fells along the High Tove – Ullscarf ridge. These fells are renowned for their wetness and general bogginess at the best of times, so you can imagine what conditions were like today!
