Terrain Overview





The Indian Summer on our week away in Lakeland continues, given the heat we decided on a smaller climb, that of Binsey which has

the distinction of being the most Northerly of all the Wainwright Fells



The back end of September in The Lake District … honestly !!



Just of the main road from Keswick to Carlisle at Beweldeth – a lay by provides ample car parking



From the road a view of Binsey



Through the gate and follow the farm track



Sue & Ste head off



The west crag of Binsey dominates the early views



Looking across to Skiddaw from the Farm track



Through the gate at the end of the track and follow the path that leads on to the open fell side



Heading towards the West Crag



Through the gate at the intake wall



Heed well the warning if you are walking with a dog



The path swings round to the left to take advantage of the easier slope



A busy Bee !!



The path swings right to pass the front face of the West Crag



Heading towards the summit
