Really looking forward to the walk today. I was only bagging the Wainwright summit of Glaramara and Rosthwaite Fell – Bessyboot so could’ve taken a much shorter route. However, any route that takes in the area from Sty Head to Esk Hause is worth the extra effort; one of my favourite Lakeland areas 🙂

The walk does have some scrambling, especially the descent of Glaramara (although there are easier alternative routes), but nothing more than grade one, and then only for short sections. The paths are pretty good for the most part.

Strenuous but very rewarding; another one for a clear day!
