||Mainly sunny and warm
||Heading onto the fells from the Joss Lane
car park I followed an intermittent track to the summit of Crook. From
here the path to Arant Haw was clearly visible. The summit was rather
uninteresting but the nearby banking provided a good spot for elevenses
and a good vantage point to check out the possible routes from The
Calf. Heading back to the main path I made my way to Calders and on to
The Calf. After a brief stop I decided to change the planned route and
made my way across White Fell to a very pleasant gradual descent. After
walking around the flanks of Bram Rigg, crossing the beck was a little
tricky and this part of the route will be changed next time I do the
walk. Climbing up the western flank of Seat Knott was quite tough and I
was glad of a lunch stop at the top. From here the return route was
quite muddy in places but a pleasant walk.

Seat Knott - not much of a climb from this side!
