Early start for me this morning, I arrived at Bleach Green car park before 9am to be greeted by a cold breeze and a low sun. I had just the one Synge left (other than Pillar Rock) Boat How, nestled under Boat How Crag to the South of Ennerdale Water. I'd mulled over several methods of ascent, but decided to go via Anglers Crag.
|I soon reached Anglers Crag, here looking across the saddle to Crag Fell.|
|And here looking up Ennerdale|
|I made a direct descent to the shore of Ennerdale Water.|
And found....a lone tree! Who knew it!! It's a better one than the Buttermere Tree IMHO...more difficult to access though.
Starling Dodd is the hill framed between its branches.
|As I approached the head of the lake the wind had dropped, there were flies everywhere taking advantage of the warm morning no doubt.|
This view is looking Northwest to Herdus Scaw or Great Borne
|As I headed back towards the North shore, the sun had disappeared and the sky was overcast. I dropped down beside the River Liza to take a photo looking back at Pillar.|
|Lots of Primroses in the woods now.|
|Its a lovely flat walk from just below Bowness back to the car park, it would be absolutely packed if it were at a central Lakes honeypot. It gives great views across the lake to Crag Fell.|
