Route: Lonscale Fell

Area: Northern Lake District

Date of walk: 5th January 2013

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 4 miles

Ascent: 1,500 feet

I parked at the end of the track beyond the Underscar Hotel, crossed Whit Beck and went along the flank of the fell, turning uphill to make a stiff climb of about 1,300 feet. I forgot the camera and had to make do with the iphone, annoyingly. It wasn’t the disaster it could have been, since half way up I climbed into the clouds and there were no views at all.

After reaching the summit (2,344 feet), I descended via the ‘motorway’ to Skiddaw, where there were plenty of people making the climb up, though most of it would have been in zero visibility.
