Walk: Angletarn Beck, Crookabeck, Boredale Hause, Angle Tarn, Satura Crag, Hayeswater, Hayeswater Gill
Start Point: Hartsop Grid Reference: NY 410 130 
Distance: 7 miles Ascent: 1,770 feet
Time: 3.75 hours
Weather: Overcast with sun towards the end of the walk
Comments: Walking in a very familiar area Lisa joined me to check out the route for a group activity. We took a clockwise route so that any remaining low cloud would have cleared by the time we had reached the higher levels. There were good views which would have been even better if the sun had emerged earlier than it did - as we were descending.

Lisa avoids the bridge . . .

which was damaged in the heavy storms . . .

but the higher bridge survived

Shame the daffodils are only just coming out

Beginning the climb . . .

Glenridding and Ullswater come into view

The pack of houds we had seen from the car park . . .

are heading in our direction . . .

but start to head down . . .

before they reach us . . .

following the line of the beck

We get a better view of a straggler

Looking back to Place Fell . . .

and down to Brothers Water

Our first view of Angle Tarn . . .

and looking across towards Helvellyn

Lisa checks out the Bannerdale Valley

Hayeswater . . .

where we take a lunch break . . .

and a few photos . . .

now that the sun has come out

Kath checks out the views . . .

across to a cloud topped Helvellyn . . .

then zooms in on the patterns created by the Hayeswater

Hayeswater Beck

A water spout near the new hydroelectric scheme . . .

and with a longer shutter speed
