Blencathra via Hall’s Fell
What an ascent. We have all read about how Blencathra stands out amongst the other Wainrights. Blencathra stands apart from the other Lakeland hills looking south and west offers a vast panorama covering the vast majority of fells in the area but it is also partly due to the contrasting nature of the mountain. To the south a vast claw appears to have ripped the mountain apart leaving deep gullies and sharp ridges whilst to the north slopes fall gently in to an empty wilderness where it is possible to escape the crowds even on a popular summer’s day.
