OS GRID REF NY205141

133.Fleetwith Pike 2125ft/648M


Walk completed 18 08 2000 with Richard. We started from the car park behind the youth hostel at Honister Pass, following the steep route of the old tramway up to the ruins of the Drum House. This was hard work on a warm day. On reaching the Drum House we continued for a distance before finding a path across the fell and up to the summit ridge. The summit offers excellent views in all directions  particularly over Buttermere. We returned by following the summit ridge  along the top of Honister Crag and past some old disused quarries as we dropped down to Bell Crags. The path then descends straight down to the Honister Slate Mine and the youth hostel. This is another excellent,  shorter walk, which offers  tremendous returns for relatively little effort.
