Our route leads from the sleepy hamlet of Hartsop steeply up on the The Knott, before heading south to High Street Summit where we will look over to the deep and dark Blea Water. High Street will be our first of three Wainwrights of the day. Next onto Kidsty Pike (Wainwright no 2), for views down to the Haweswater reservoir and across to the Shap Fells. This is the highest point on the Coast-to-Coast National Walking Route. Next door to this we can bag Rampsgill Head (Wainwright no 3) before returning under the Knott and back to the valley floor. If time and weather permits, we can extend another kilometre to catch glimpses of Angle Tarn on the descent.
High street Summit is steeped with history of the Romans chariot racing up on the mountains and goods being transported from Galava Gate Fort in Ambleside to Brocavum Fort near Penrith, high above the danger of ambush in the forested valley floor.
All walks are subject to change due to adverse weather and you must accept the Sound Mountain Judgement of our experienced leaders on these occasions.
