Terrain Overview

 

Overview

 

Not the intended walk of the day which was meant to be Haystacks, which I turned back from due to bad weather. On the way back to Keswick the weather

cleared around Newlands Hause, so I took the opportunity of completing this quick two summit ridge walk

 

 

From the car parking area the route up to Knott Rigg is very straightforward and the ridgeline is very quickly reached

The weather started to come in at speed here on the summit of Ard Crags
