Walla Crag

Central Lake District

Route: Walla Crag

Area: Central Lake District

Date of walk: 6th November 2013

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 7.5 miles

Ascent: 1,100 feet

It was a dull and overcast day, so we decided on a low level fell but one which has plenty of interest and fabulous views whatever the weather

We parked at the Headlands in the middle of Keswick and walked out of the town via Hope Park

The ascent of Walla Crag via Castlerigg and Rakefoot is very easy and we were soon on the top enjoying views back over Keswick and Derwent Water

We descended to Ashness Bridge and then back into Keswick along the shore of the lake. Despite the indifferent weather we’d had a great time in stunning surroundings
