This is somewhere I'd only attempt to park if I were out for an early start. The number of spaces are somewhat limited and if you did arrive to find the place full, your options for an alternative are almost none existent in the area.


Route Map

Not long after the start of today's walk and looking across to Harter Fell which still had a little cloud on its summit.

As I was walking up towards Red Tarn the cloud lifted from the higher fells to give this view of Great Knott, Crinkle Crags and Bow Fell.

And again this time from Red Tarn.

There were lots of view of Crinkle Crags and Bow Fell while on this walk. This one taken from the path up to Pike O'Blisco.

The Langdales from Pike O'Blisco summit.

Great Langdale also taken from Pike O'Blisco.

Cold Pike and the path I used on the next part of the walk.
