An unexpected trip to Lingmoor Fell

4th November 2012

Route.  Elterwater - Brown How on Lingmoor Fell - Side Pike - Great Langdale - Elterwater


Sue had organised a local walk on the walkers forum but there was not much interest and as of Saturday evening only three people were due to attend and that included me and Sue. Then due to unforeseen circumstances our lone companion had to drop out so 10am on Sunday saw us sat in the car park in Tochholes looking northwards  to the blue sky. We made the decision to drive up to the Lakes and as Sue had not climbed Lingmoor from Elterwater that's where we ended up.

The Langdale Pikes from our car parking spot.


Zooming in on Pavey Ark.


Wetherlam from the South Cairn

Looking back down to Elter Water (the lake) and Windermere

Brown How, the top of Lingmoor Fell come into sight.

Crinkle Crags leading on to Bowfell and the unmistakable mountain shape of Harter Fell  over the Wrynose pass.

Zooming in on a snowy Helvellyn. The prominent path in the centre is the one I used a couple of weeks ago.

The great wall of Lingmoor.

 Just along the path we bumped into two familiar looking dogs complete with familiar looking owners who were out enjoying the fantastic conditions and were walking with the author of one of my favourite walking websites.

Those pikes again from the summit.

Zooming in on Bowfell.

following the wall down to Side Pike.

Sue not troubled by the squeezer rock.

Looking back down at the wall from the top of Side Pike.

Blea Tarn with Wetherlam behind from the same place.

Pike How catches the evening sun.


A last look back along the valley.


Very tempting and looking very welcoming but we had stayed out longer than planned so not this time 



Last walk - Troutbeck to Wythburn   Next walk - Dunnerdale Fells
