This is a truly spectacular walk and one to be one on a good day! You can shorten the route by a few miles by parking directly below Yewbarrow and the route up is a steep and rocky in places - only a mild scramble. Well worth it and was great to make such a lovely video to go with it! Please do watch  ;D

Length: 11.7km (7.27 Miles)
Ascent: 777m (2549ft)
Time: 5 Hours

Stunning photos.


Was walking along the Wasdale road below Yewbarrow earlier this year, it may be a modest hill in terms of height, but it certainly occupies a commanding position.

Great pics and amazing views on film.  Did the walk in March with not so impressive views but an excellent fell i'd like to walk again.
