Coniston Old Man

Start point: Walna Scar road (SD 289 970)

Walna Scar car park – Goat’s Hawse – Goat’s Water – The Old Man of Coniston – Walna Scar car park

Distance: 4.5 miles     Total Ascent: 570 metres     Time Taken: 2 hours 15 minutes

Weather: Dull and misty. 12oC.

It was a dull day today, I had hopes that the mist might disappear and bring out the sun but no such luck. This is a quick and easy round of The Old Man with the ascent being gentle and the descent being direct with only the misty conditions to spoil it.
