Red Screes

Start point: Bottom of Kirkstone Pass (NY 402 113)

Kirkstone Pass – Middle Dodd (237) – Smallthwaite Band – Red Screes (238) – Scandale Pass – Little Hart Crag (239)High Hartsop Dodd (240) – Kirkstone Pass

Weather: Dull, overcast – rain and strong wind on the tops.

Today’s walk is a steep ascent up to Middle Dodd and Red Screes from the bottom of Kirkstone Pass, across the Scandale Pass and a lovely ridge walk from Little Hart Crag to Hartsop Dodd, then a steep descent back to Kirkstone Pass. The weather wasn’t brilliant again today but the high winds meant that there was the odd clearing of the mist to give fleeting glimpses of a view.
