Yewdale Fells

Saturday 20 July. My final walk of this holiday was 5¼ miles with over 1,500ft of ascent across the Yewdale Fells. Starting at 07:30 from Coniston, I walked past the youth hostel and then the climbing really began. A very steep uphill which included a 1in3 scree slope. Once on the top there were great views back towards Coniston and across to the Old Man. The descent to the road leading towards Tliberthwaite was fairly gentle and I then followed the Cumbria Way back to the car.
