Area: Central Lake District

Date of walk: 9th January 2014

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 5.1 miles

Ascent: 1,300 feet

The weather forecast had been negative the night before, and looking out of the window the next day the forecast seemed to be right, with low cloud and some rain. With no high hopes I set off and parked at the Bowderstone car park

As soon as I started the climb the clouds lifted, and by the time I reached the top of King’s How on Grange Fell conditions were almost perfect – sunshine, blue skies, fluffy clouds and crystal clear views

I decided to extend the planned walk and crossed soggy terrain to climb up to Brund Fell and Jopplety How, from where the views were equally good

It clouded up on the descent but no matter, I’d had a fantastic couple of hours in glorious conditions
