Sunday 21st October Wetherlam – Black Sails

Thanks to David for putting on a last minute walk it is unreccied

I’ve done this myself it is a lovely walk one of my favourites and quite part of the lakes perfect for half term week.

It will be at least a medium walk with a little scramble towards the top. Nothing major compared to striding edge but we do have to mention it.

It will be between 6 and 8 miles (it is unreccied and route uncertain)

Time taken will be around the 6 hour mark (again we have to make allowances its unreccied.)

Meet point
Horse Crag Car Park at 9am – Yewdale Beck – Grid Ref NY 30619 00980 (Last time I was there it was still free. The dreaded meters hadn’t yet made an appearance hopefully they still haven’t)

Route will be up toward Wetherlam/Black Sails and then south down the ridge in a horseshoe back to car park.
