High Hartsop Dodd and Little Hart Crag – 27 October 2019

On a grey day but high enough to see the tops, with Sally to join us , we finally decided on these lower Wainwright’s with a variety of route options to have a go at today. A steep climb up the nose of High Hartsop Dodd brought us to these fantastic views through the rocks.

There was also a super view back down the valley, looking at where we set off from – Brothers Water.

All cheese for the first summit of the day!!

The views never fail to amaze me and I love the lines of the fells within the views.

Time for Evie to do some waking with a small down before more up between the summits

It’s cold up here and we made the correct decision not to do any of the ‘biggies’ on this day. Here we are at Little Hart Crag, where we ate our lunch and then made the decision to head down. The third potential summit (Middle Dodd) looked that little bit too far extra , especially as as Evie was by this point very keen to walk as well.

More cracking views, this time down towards Windermere before we head onwards .

We start the great decent – opposite would be the ascent to Middle Dodd – so tempting….

Evie very independent in her walking.Finally back at the bottom. But mummy – look at the lake!

Could it get more beautiful? Maybe we didn’t get the third Wainwright in, but we did get to see this, throw stones and enjoy a very refreshing swim!!
