Trip date 18th - 22nd August 2015

The aim of this trip was to complete A.Wainwrights book six the North Western fells a journey we started way back in 2011 with our first ever fell Cat Bells near to Keswick. Although we have climbed fells in other parts of the lakes covered by alternative Wainwrights this is an area we both know very well and had to finish. Basecamp was made in the lovely little village of Braithwaite west of Keswick and we used the same campsite as before Scotgate holiday park nice little site with great reviews and £22 a night - don’t forget you can spend £8 on just parking the car up there so to dump the car and walk is a bargain. The six fells that we needed to climb were all near to this campsite with one of the walks starting at the tent door, the other few needed parking however car parking is free if you know where to look (I will give details). Two of the fells were just simple up and touch the top and back down we done them just to finish however they were great views and a pleasure to climb. As ever please take care in the hills and make sure you are prepared for the weather and can read a map and compass.

Causey Pike - Scar Crags - Barrow Fell

Untitled

A walk of about 7.5mile with 2565ft of assent, tracks and Paths are good but please note Causey Pike needs to be scrambled to get over so I have marked the walk as hard.

Whinlatter Fell

This fell will need Car parking I’m afraid and in the lake district this means one thing Rip Off, trust me you can soon lose £5

Whiteside Fell

This fell is a hard slog and the path involves very loose scree and a fair bit of rock to get over and around, therefore I mark this walk as hard.

Robinson Fell

his was the last fell to walk to complete Book 6 The North Western fells by A Wainwright, all we had to do was to reach the summit as fast as possible
