Absolutely the connoisseurs way up to Wetherlam, this walk is a full Lakeland in miniature with steep, rocky ascents, grassy paths, tarns, rivers and two edges – Steel Edge and Wetherlam Edge. Steel Edge is quite steep but a real joy to walk up and once on Wetherlam itself there are great views of the Coniston fells, Coniston Water, over to the Langdales and beyond.
