Walla Crag

Wednesday 24 June 2015. I promised myself an easy day but I’m not sure that is what I got. My first thought was to catch the bus part of the way down Borrowdale which would have cut 3 miles off my route. Instead, I decided to walk straight from the caravan, across Crow Park, to the boat landing stages on Derwent Water. From here I followed the lakeside path to just beyond Calfclose Bay before striking off uphill in the shadow of Falcon Crag. This path almost took me to Ashness Bridge before doubling back to the top of Falcon Crag and on to Walla Crag.

It was fairly busy up there as it is one of the easier routes from Keswick. I stopped for a coffee at a recently developed cafe at the farm just outside Springs Wood. This was handy as I walked 6 miles by then and needed a rest and something to drink other than water.

It was only a couple of miles from here back to Keswick and my caravan. The walk was 7.8 miles with a total ascent of 1,470ft almost all of this being on the climb up Falcon & Walla Crags.
