Another of our favourite fells for the views and relative ease of making the summit.
That said, whichever way you go up there are steep steps or a scramble. On this occasion we went for the steps so as not to risk slipping with Evie in the sling.
A nice new cairn at the top to tell Evie which mountains she is looking at!!
And a cracking view as always to enjoy
And then down for well deserved cake!
15 October 2018 – Mummies & babies hike Cat Bells
Monday’s is normally a day we go out with a buggy walks group, but thi October Monday the weather was just too nice to not go up high.
Heading up Cat Bells with Claire & Oliver, Chrissie & Ederle,we decided on the ridge ascent and the tackle the scramble at the top. Not easy, but manageable- just.
Getting to the top Evie was still asleep, but woke up for the picnic.
Chrissie and Ederle enjoy the view
And Oliver takes a stroll on the summit.
The three of us pleased to have managed to get out beautiful but heavy loads to the top.
And finishing the walk along the undulating lower path, still enjoying the view, but glad to be off the steep stuff for the sake of knee preservation!
