Hartsop Above How,
Little Hart Crag,
High Hartsop Dodd, Hartsop Hall, Brothers Water
||Cow Bridge car park
||NY 402 133
||Overcast but mild
||With a reasonable forecast
Sheila and I headed up to the Lakes so she could cross
off 3 more Wainwrights. The gradual climb onto Hartsop
Above How was followed by a more severe climb up to Hart
Crag. The rocky route from Hart Crag seemed to be easier
to navigate than on previous occasions and it wasn't
long before we reached Dove Crag. The route then
descended to Little Hart Crag where we stopped for
lunch. As we approached High Hartsop Dodd we met a
couple who had climbed up from the valley so after a
brief discussion we decided to return by that route
instead of down Caiston Glen. The descent proved to be
no problem as the path zig-zagged most of the way down.
A pleasant walk.
