Carrock Fell

Carrock Fell

Route:  Carrock Fell

Area: Northern Lake District

Date of walk:  29th March 2013

Walkers: Andrew Gilly David and Rachel

Distance: 5.7 miles

Ascent: 1,100 feet

We parked on the roadside just before Calebreck and made our way up along the side of Carrock Beck. There was still plenty of snow around, getting deeper the higher we climbed.

As we slogged our way up the slope we admired a paraboarder who was gliding effortlessly up the hill on the other side of the valley

At the end of the valley, we turned up Miton Hill and made our way up to the top of Carrock Fell.  It was freezing on the top but there were fabulous views of Skiddaw and Blencathra, the Eastern Fells, the Solway Firth and the Pennines

We then made an easy descent towards Carrock Beck and back to our car.  A fantastic day out in these quiet and unfrequented fells
