Blencathra from Bowscale Fell - 31st May 2011
One of the things I like about this forum is the trip reports and more importantly the photos that come with them.
Every now and then some one will post a photo and I think wow, I have to go there and see for myself. Sometimes because of my circumstances itís not always possible to get there, which brings me to the purpose of this post.
I would like to go to Bowscale-fell and see where Brandywell (John?) took this Photo.
Iíve looked at the maps but there is only so much stuff that a map shows.
So my question to anyone who has been up that way , what is the terrain like , it looks grassy in the Photo, where is the best starting place (car parking ect), and which is the easiest route up there , when I say easiest route I mean is there a way up there without having to go over lose scree / rocks ?.
I have no ambitions to get to the top of Blencathra (at the moment) but would dearly love to get onto (and off) Bowscale-fell.
And whilst I am asking, route up or down (doesnít matter if itís the same way up & down) but under 8 miles or so. (Iím feeling a bit wimpy at the moment)
Many thanks for any info ÖÖÖMick
