|Myself, Lorna, Ruth and Ian drove down to Skelgill, to the west of Derwentwater near Keswick, to do the shortish walk in over Catbells to Dalehead Tarn. This would be Lorna's first real wild camp carrying gear, so it had to be a relatively easy one!|
Looking across towards High Stile and Red Pike above Buttermere.
Lunch at the foot of Moss Force at Newlands Hause, before turning North East and heading over Knott Rigg and Ard Crags.
Lorna on the short but steep climb up Knott Rigg with the Buttermere valley behind.
Ian and Ruth on Knott Rigg, with Causey Pike (i think?) behind.
Looking South East from near Knott Rigg, back over to High Spy on the left and Dalehead on the right. Dalehead Tarn, out of view, sits right in the middle of the two.
Descending Red Screes after Ard Crags, and looking into the Newlands Valley as we head back to Skelgill and the car.
