Terrain Overview





A fine walk along good paths throughout

The path from the main road leads across a footbridge that crosses Goldrill Beck



Sue and Ste head on towards Rooking



Looking back towards Patterdale and a distant Sheffield Pike



At the end of the path a sign post directs you off to the right through a handgate



The path leads on to the open fell side



The start of the track that leads up to Boredale Hause



The views open up as height is gained



At Boredale Hause the path turns back on itself and steepens as it leads towards the summit



Approaching Round How which can either be scrambled over or take the path to the left around it



Looking through the haze towards a snow capped Helvellyn




Looking over to Angletarn Pikes and Brothers Water



Having negotiated Round How the summit cairn comes into view
