Here are images of the days efforts, no description of my routes as I wouldn't want to encourage others to follow in my footsteps.
|The large rock in the foreground is the high point of In Scar (although the photo suggests otherwise). There was an excellent view Eastwards to the Pennines.
|Knotts, this was the odd man out today...access land all the way! In fact I could see the car almost all the way. Just an odd stone or two to mark the summit, grand view across to Heughscar Hill and beyond.
|Not very inspiring, but this is the high point of Dacre Bank...I can't recommend this one at all:-(
|This is the very rushy top of Brownhow Hill, amazingly it was dry underfoot. Cracking view of Blencathra from this one.
|The top of Hagg Hill (Hagg Wood), and total devastation all round...take my word for it walkers/explorers aren't welcome here. I'll spare you the details. Good viewpoint for the lower reaches of Ullswater though
|Birk Crag, here we're looking across Ullswater to Hallin Fell, Wether Hill Etc.
|The light was fading fast as I nipped up Cockley Moor, although the summit isn't on access land there was at least a forest track to within a few metres of the top. Shame the trees obscure Blencathra.
