It was billed as a toughie and with lots of scrambling opportunities both up and down and it didnt dissapoint.
Parked at the small carpark at the base we made our way up the somewhat steep path that would take us up the valley to the plateau area between Red Pike and Yewbarrow. The path we'd previously come down on. Last time we were on this path we saw a buzzard flying high and today I caught a brief glimpse of it as we neared the plateau.
Back on the path down we could see back up to the lovely point mountain and after skipping down the path we were back in the shelter of the trees of the car park.
A short walk but 2 Hewitts and 1 Wainwright gained and a good day out. I'm sure our legs and arms will feel it tomorrow..........
