Starting from the car park it is a pleasant warm up along the track by the lake before crossing over Char Dub  at the eastern end of Ennerdale Water.  Following one of the few gaps up through the trees, we climb steeply up the should of Lingmell before contouring round towards Steeple.  Again a steep ascent with an odd easy scramble takes us to the summit of Steeple itself, from here the majority of the ascent is done.   We drop down before popping back up again onto Scoat Fell.  Following the line of the wall west southwest on an easy walk before hitting the summit of Haycock, the descent from here is a little bit trickier and relatively pathless to avoid the various small drops.  We then amble our way up to Caw Fell before dropping back down via Silver Cove back to Ennerdale Water.

On a good day the views are first class – no promises on the weather!
