OS GRID REF NY201168

79.Robinson 2418ft/737m


Walk completed 21 08 2002 with Richard. We had set off intending to complete this walk a number of times only to be put off by extreme weather or some other consideration. We did it the easy way by driving up from Buttermere  to Newlands Hause. From the car park we climbed the steep path that ascends close to  Moss Beck and  Moss Force. The ground becomes very boggy as the path crosses towards and then skirts the flanks of High Snockrigg before climbing eastward towards the summit. If time is short the round trip of about 3 miles and approximately 1400ft of ascent is easily completed and the effort well rewarded in terms of the views on offer.
