A round above Rosthwaite

7th August 2016

Route.  Rosthwaite - coast to coast path - Lining Crag - Greenup Edge - Ullscarf - High Saddle - Dock Tarn - Great Crag - Brund Fell - Rosthwaite

(about 10 miles 2600 ft ascent )

A very windy day predicted for today so we visited a couple of low hills..


looking over Stonethwaite Beck as we make our way along the valley.


Rosthwaite Fell ahead.


Eagle Crag from the big sheepfold adjacent to where the path to Lingy End leaves the main route.


Climbing higher now and Lining Crag appears in the distance.


Lots of water coming off the fells today.


Eagle Crag in profile and great view back down into Borrowdale.


 Lining Crag. Sue who has never been this way was wondering where the path up was. ( it's on the left side, and becomes clear as you near the base of the fell ).


A close up of Lining Crag..

 Looking down from near the top.


  The view over the drumlins in the hanging valley to Sergeant's crag and the Glaramara ridge beyond.

After a bit of a boggy meander along Greenup Edge we reach Ullscarf.

We followed the ridge north for a short way then crossed High Saddle, diverted around Low Saddle and headed across boggy difficult ground in the direction of Dock Tarn

Eagle Crag and the view along Langstrath.

Dock Tarn at last and the Heather is starting to look stunning, it was just a shame that the sun never really showed itself.

Even on a dullish day Dock Tarn is a lovely spot.

Passing the northern end of Dock Tarn and we join a proper path after a mile or so of bog and heather trotting.

Watendlath from Great Crag.

Heading across a bit more wet ground to the Grange Fell group.

 This picture doesn't really capture it but the tall fine grass looked lovely swaying in the wind.

Very windy on Brund Fell. So windy that we couldn't stand up

 A look down into Borrowdale from the path to Hazel Bank.
