Terrain Overview





The weather forecast for this late time of year promised a fine sunny day – it did not fail to deliver. This walk from Church Bridge in Troutbeck picks up the Garburn Road

and provides easy access to the summit just before the top of the Garburn Pass. Good walking throughout




Hard to believe but it’s the 2nd October 2014 – not a cloud in sight and a freshening breeze, perfect conditions for a climb



Starting out through the woods just opposite the Church



Almost immediately the views open up from the Garburn Road, here the Troutbeck valley with the Tongue prominent in the middle



Looking across to Wansfell



Past the stiles in the wall on the right hand side – the path continues upwards



The first barred gate, The path continues around past the old disused quarry



The remnants of Applethwaite quarry

Looking across to Red Screes over the Kirkstone Pass



Looking over to the Coniston Fells



Troutbeck Tongue on the valley floor



We continue to the second barred gate and the line of conifers ahead mark the upper reaches of the Garburn Road



Looking across to Crinkle Crags as we approach the high point of the road



Just at the conifer plantation – look out for a wall stile on the right



The wall stile leads on to the open fellside



Over the stile and double back on yourself and follow the line of the wall upwards



Just at the end of the wall veer left and head up towards the gap between the two rock outcrops



A distinct track can be followed leading to the summit
