Troutbeck – 24 January

A day out with Keith, the first for a while. Up over the ice from  Kirkstone Pass to St Raven’s Edge which we may or may not have visited previously before going on to Wansfell (Baystones) which we have visited previously but have no record of the visit. Down through Troutbeck to The Tongue which we have visited before but only twice. From here the plan had been to go up to Thornthwaite Mouth but there was so much snow and, probably, ice that we would have been descending after dark. Instead we dropped off the west side of The Tongue to a wonderful old bridge over Trout Beck before climbing back to St Raven’s Edge via Hard Crag to reach Kirkstone Pass not long before dark.
