Eskdale – 05 April

Eskdale for a round of Birketts – Hard Knott and Yew Bank before crossing Lingcove Beck for Throstlehow Crag and Scar Lathing. Finally across the Esk to reach High Scarth, Silverybield Crag and the descent to Brotherkeld.

Setting off in mist, it was hard to be optimistic about seeing anything – indeed it was hard to be optimistic about finding everything but as we gained the ridge near Hard Knott we found ourselves above the inversion and on Yew Bank we lingered long in order to enjoy the sunshine and the clouds drifting around the high fells.

Eventually we had to head down into Upper Eskdale and as we did the clouds cleared out and we enjoyed sunshine for the rest of the day. Just perfect.
