This route on 9th July 2015 made for a longish day-walk, from Catstycam looping around to Sheffield Pike. The distance is 20km (with 1.6km of ascent) and it takes in the summit of 9 Wainwrights.

It was the scene below, from near Grisedale Beck, that reminded me what I have always looked for in a Lakeland walk. The high, craggy fells - not the sheep! The day was destined to end in darkness and fog, navigating off Arniston Crag with a headtorch. Not my original plan, but a lesson in always being prepared.
