|Walk:||Pasture Bottom. Threshthwaite Mouth, Thornthwaite Crag, High Street, Kidsty Pike, Rampsgill Head, The Knott, Hayeswater, Hayeswater Gill|
|Start Point:||Hartsop||Grid Reference:||NY 410 130|
|Distance:||9 miles||Ascent:||2,750 feet|
|Comments:||A pleasant walk alongside Pasture Beck led to a steep, stepped ascent to Threshthwaite Mouth before climbing the scree slope to Thornthwaite Crag. The route then undulated to visit 4 more Wainwrights with w long descent from The Knott to reach Hayeswater. Once a reservoir , Hayeswater has been returned to a lake but the continuing activity on the descent to Hartsop detracts from the picturesque nature of this part of the walk.|
Heading up Pasture Bottom . . .
past Raven Crag . . .
with time to look back down the valley . . .
as I reach Threshthwaite Cove
Looking back to Threshthwaite Mouth from the climb . . .
to Thornthwaite Beacon . . .
sitting on a huge rocky base and with views to Windermere
A skylark's song attracts me to its position
Looking down Riggindale Valley to Haweswater . . .
with my next summit, Kidsty Pike, on the left
Haweswater from Kidsty Pike
Rampsgill Head had great views north and . . .
The Knott looks back up to Rampsgill Head
Hayeswater has now been turned back into a lake . . .
and the dam has been replaced by a picturesque exit to the beck
where there are many waterfalls . . .
and a new bridge to the filter house
