Cat Bells

The Walk

13th August 2008 -

 This walk started in Keswick with a boat ride across Derwent Water to Hawes End. A short walk from the landing stage we started to climb in a southerly direction up Skelgill Bank enroute to Catbells (1481ft). Following straight on over the summit we headed steeply down to Hause Gate before climbing again to Bull Crag the summit of Maiden Moor (1887 ft). The plan was to head on to High Spy, but as inexperienced fell walkers at the time we decided to head back at Blea Crag, after all there was a ferry to catch.
2 Wainwright's completed. Total so far 5.
Catbells - 451 mts.
Maiden Moor - 576 mts.
