Terrain Overview





A lovely walk along good paths with a beautiful summit and tarn. A must do short walk in the Patterdale area




Along the A592 towards Patterdale a path between a row of cottages aqt Deepdale Bridge marks the start of this walk



Follow the path for a short distance to arrive at a gate that gives open access across a field that heads towards Goldrill Beck. Basically we are aiming

for the path that slopes gently up the side of Dubhow Crag



Hartsop Dodd and Caudale Moor from the path



The path continues over a bridge to cross Goldrill Beck




Over the bridge and the path doubles back on itself initially to reach the foot of the long sloping climb up to Boredale Hause



On the path proper now as it climbs gradually



The south shore of Ullswater from the path



Looking over to Helvellyn and the sharp peak of Catstye Cam. The path leading up to The Hole in the Wall can be clearly seen



Eventually we reach Boredale Hause which is a convergence point for a number of paths that lead to some of the Far Eastern Fells



We stop briefly and chat to the owners of “Nell” who is quite frankly buggered and does not wish to go any further



After a short break we head up the path that continues on to the Pikes whilst Nells’ owners debate how much further to continue



The path is clearly defined and passes through a short ravine between Rake Crag and Stony Rigg



Looking back in the opposite direction towards Place Fell



The cairn markers lead the way towards Angle Tarn



High Hartsop Dodd and Middle Dodd behind Brothers Water



Just slightly further along the path and for the first time you can actually see the twin summits of Angletarn Pikes. There is no discernable path per se – its just a matter

of gaining more height towards the ridgeline



The summit cairn of the South Tower with Angle Tarn below – absolutely stunning



Lunchtime !!!




Surveying the scenery, its just awesome up here and  not somewhere you want to leave in a hurry



The full extent of Angle Tarn



Down at the Tarn with someone cooling off in the best possible fashion
