Travel to Cumbria and Beyond

Steel Edge

Steel Edge

A few weeks ago when the sun was shining

Blue sky but just a little breezy.

Maybe not such a good thing

with a few ridges to contend with.

Steel Edge up Wetherlam was planned.

My first time up being rather daunting in the snow.

A little  more enticing in July.

But the route would be different.

Rocks on Steel Edge

Time to take a detour to pause and pose on perfectly placed rocks.

Before the last scramble to the top of the ridge.

And on to Wetherlam to see the Sca Fells seemingly stretch across to Langdale

There’s a bit of down to Swirl Hause,

And a fair bit of up again, but with the air clear enough to show Levers Water in the foreground, Coniston and then the west coast there was little to complain of.

From Swirl that’s the climbing complete.  A gentle jaunt across to the Carrs.  Taking in the plane crash site on the way.

and met a few more people enjoying the day

So that was the end of the hills.  From the Carrs, all down hill via Wetside Edge
