|Start Point:||Tarn Hows main car park||Grid Ref:||SD 326 995|
|Distance:||7.5 miles||Ascent:||2,100 feet|
|Weather:||A heavy frost but misty and damp|
Marie, Andrea, Gill and Shep, led by me
|Comments:||The day had promised to be dry with a heavy frost but we travelled into mist as we approached the Lake District. The route onto and off Home Fell was not easy in the mist and I made good use of my GPS. The same was true, to an extent on Black Crag, known as Black Fell in Wainwright's book.|
