TR Arnison Crag Sat 5 Jan 19
« on: 18:58:11, 08/01/19 »
We went to Patterdale again on Saturday, we were back there to go up Arnison Crag the fell we'd not done last week. We had no excuse this week, the winds were light. We started from the footpath near the public loos and started climbing toward Oxford Crag.

The view toward Birkhouse Moor


Ullswater from Oxford Crag


We'd seen a couple of fires, one in the church grounds and one near the playing field, we assumed they were garden fires as there were no fire engines or sirens heard.

The fires were still producing smoke. The view toward Ullswater wasn't totally spoiled by the smoke. It is one of the best views in the Lake District  :)

Brock Crags, Gray Crag and Hartsop Dodd from Arnison Crag


Although mainly cloudy, there were sunny spells and a bit of blue sky, not a bad day at all.

Place Fell


We wandered over to one of the other little tops to have some lunch. We found a spot out of the wind which was cold but not strong.

Over Birks to Birkhouse Moor and Sheffield Pike


Our lunchtime view of Ullswater


We had a great lunch, soaking up the views.

We spied a few possible wild camping spots for future reference.

The stile over the wall into Glenamara Park


The shot was taken after I had got over the stile. It is an awkward and inelegant crossing, this one. Best done when nobody is watching. Thankfully nobody was. There was dog gate for Squeaky so she was spared any embarrassment.

In Glenamara Park


We spoke to the first people on the walk when we got to the main path. It had been quiet so far, hardly anyone about. They were carrying wild camping gear. We were slightly envious as we'd considered going on a wild camp. The Met Office overnight temps for Saturday night had put us off, below zero! We will wait until it's warmer.

The cloud was putting on a show for us.

Silver Crag from Glenridding Pier


We'd had a great walk but we were pleased we hadn't gone camping because the temperature had plummeted when the sun went down and it was really cold while we were waiting for the bus. Our route was Patterdale - Oxford Crag - Arnison Crag - Trough Head - Glenamara Park - Grisedale Bridge - Glenridding Pier - Glenridding.  10km with 372m ascent.

Great pics April and nice to know what I could have seen when I walked up it last year.  The weather when I walked it was awful, non stop rain and low cloud.  Now I know what views I could have seen, maybe I should do it again.

Gorgeous photos April, and gorgeous skies in the last two shots.


And that's quite some stile! Lucky that there was a dog gate.
