Haystacks OK for a dog?
« on: 08:12:00, 22/08/17 »
Good morning

Learnt a lot from this forum so thank you to all who have contributed.

We're planning on climbing Haystacks and would welcome advice as to its suitability for dogs. We have a cocker spaniel and she has been with us for Cat Bells and each of the Yorkshire three peaks which she has managed without problem - although very tired afterwards.

IMHO, if you walked up Haystacks via Wharnscale Bottom (the path running south east beneath Fleetwith Pike) then that would present no problem to your four-legged friend.

The route up Haystacks from Scarth Gap could be a little trickier for Rover, given that there are a few small 'scrambly' bits. I think a dog could make it but I've not taken one up myself
I'm on the internet!

A friend and I took the terrier up Haystacks via Scarth Gap and  back down via Warnscale Bottom t'other day - he had no trouble.

No bother for a fit dog.
