Ascent Trip Report

A mopping up of Wainwrights in the north Central Fells but very enjoyable for all that. An anti-clockwise round of Raven Crag (plus Castle Crag), Bleaberry Fell, High Seat, High Tove and Armboth Fell (both tops). The first 3 hills being by far the best, the latter 2 rather lacking in character (other than improving views of Ullscarf as one heads south). Armboth Fell is sometimes mentioned as one of the most boring Wainwrights.

Parked on the western shore of Thirlmere in a non-pay-and-display lay-by. Deep snow which made walking rather hard work (particularly the long traverse up to Bleaberry Fell - which I'd had snow shoes) but the sub-zero temperatures made this otherwise boggy plateaux much more pleasant. Beautifully clear and still in the morning with great views all around, it clouded over in the afternoon to a level of about 800m.
