Description: From Patterdale, after detouring slightly to avoid the road walk, we will climb the long steady ridge over Hartsop Above How, over the valleys of Deepdale and Dovedale to either side. From Hartsop Above How the ridge continues to climb to the summit of Hart Crag and then the path heads north west to the summit of Fairfield.
Our descent from Fairfield takes us via the rocky ridge over Cofa Pike descending to Deepdale Hause before the easy climb up to the summit of St Sundays Crag. Dropping down we head over Birks and on to Arnison Crag before a short descent back to Patterdale.
