Ascent Trip Report

Started walk from mardale car park just at sunrise and the mountains were lit up orange ! That was a bonus. Fairly steep stoney path up to start of Branstree . Steep grassy hill that levels at top. On to Selside pike where it opens out to wonderful views down to Ennerdale water on a glorious sunny day. Zigzag path down to road that leads back to car park. Best walkback the last half mile using road as track across road near the lake is awkward and mostly unused. Back to car park where big signs state NO OVERNIGHT PARKING OR CAMPING. There were loads of campervans when we set out so its not patrolled I guess!
One of many walks from same starting point.
