High Fell

Height: 428 metres / 1404 feet Grid reference: NY 30018 01707


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.

Tilberthwaite Fells

Today’s walk is a round of the Tilberthwaite Fells. Nestling between Coniston and Langdale and bearing the scars of an industrial past, this route with fells of small stature offers some excellent and surprising views.
