28 03 2018 - High Hartsop Dodd, Little Hart Crag, Red Screes and Middle Dodd

with Paul D. Kate and Tom


After the previous day's appalling weather it was a relief to set off on this walk from Cow Bridge near Brothers Water with no wind, no rain and very good, clear views. There were plenty of clouds about but they mostly kept above the tops throughout the walk. The steep climb up High Hartsop Dodd and the even steeper descent off Middle Dodd eventually took their toll on my poor old knees as I limped and hobbled unhappily back to the car. Paul, meanwhile, had selfishly abandoned the rest of the party at the foot of Middle Dodd and hitched a lift up to the Kirkstone Pass Inn. He was on his third pint by the time the rest of us joined him. Shameful!

And in no time at all here is the summit of Red Screes with Ill Bell in the distance
