Ascent Trip Report

An anti/counter-clockwise tour of Wast Water from Overbeck Bridge.

Overbrook Bridge - Middle Fell - Seatallan - Glade How - Buckbarrow - Nether Wasdale - Irton Fell - Whin Rigg - Illgill Head - NT Wasdale Campsite - Overbeck Bridge. Approximately 23 km with 1450 metres of ascent.

Clear sun all day and remarkably warm but very hazy throughout. Illgill Head my final English Marilyn! Confirmation of completion made more difficult by the fact that at least 3 of its tops look higher than each other when you're on one of the others!
